Pics by QHMLQY.

Chongqing Grand Theatre.


Chongqing Science Museum, opening on Sept 9th.


Jiangbei church restored.


Jirongjie project has been started, by SOM.






Stunning pic of Jiefangbei. From left to right we can see the cranes of Lanko Intl (330m), Xinhua Intl (240m), ASE R5 (193m) and Poly (300m). Can you imagine this scene by 2020, once they add 12x200m+, 8x300m+ and 3x400m?

New one for Chongqing. They don't know what it is.


Also they are changing the design for the Yingli Tower now that it has started foundation works. Huge pity, I love the former version.

Jiangbei First Center.

Former version:


New:



You can see 3x200m+, but according to the website there would be 4x220-260m, so I don't know what to think.

What can I say. Many of them look incredibly tacky and overdesigned by those typical architects with an unlimited ego who love to destroy some city skyline with a project that sticks out a mile.

Many others on the other hand are simply perfect. Stunning, freaking beautiful. Same problem as always though: Not tall enough. None of them looks taller than 400m. A couple of them may be 400m~, that's all. But anyway, just look at those models around the end of the gallery, they are so beautiful.

What about the heights? Some proposals are just a few towers around 180-200m. There is a couple of proposals that don't have any highrise Others on the other hand seem to have 3 or even 4x300m~. Many have 4x200-350m. We'll see.

These are my 4 favourites.

1. Absolutely perfect.


2. Very iconic and futuristic.


3. Beautiful, very beautiful


4. Not too special, but 4x280-330m~ seems very OK to me
