Republic of China, there's nothing wrong to call it China literally.

I love those Great China Twin Towers. I hope they build those. Twin towers looks always better than just one.

Eastern Germany was Germany
North Korea is Korea
Taiwan is China

Respect the one China policy supported by common sense, United Nations and every [respectable] country in the world, thank you. My government supports this policy, the government of the owner of this forum supports this policy, the government of the country where this forum is hosted supports this policy and I'm sure that your respective governments support this policy too. Keep your personal political excentrities out of here, thank you.

PS: Further childish discussion, please open a thread at the Skybar. This is architecture.

Simply amazing, even considering that many of them are simple projects. China will break the record on supertalls and for sure, they have broken the record of 1000ft/300m+

...which is to expect no less from a booming economy and a country of such a size...

GO CHINA!!!

I am truly shocked by your logic!

Read it, come back and tell me what's difference in the two terms "continent" and "country".
I suppose you do not need a Chinese educating your English.

Sorry. I just found that post calling me dumbass and I had to reply to clearify.
Back to your questions:
Yes, with such a giant country machine running at the fastest pace in the world history it is not very surprising to me.

But I hope China isn't rushing too fast. It already happened during the Great Leap Forward.

I think the situation is totally different.
GLF is a stupid attempt led by a Chinese farmer, he was great at politics but sucked in economics.
But currently most top economists in the world are dealing with China. Cooling economic growth heat is necessary but I don't think it is related to skyscrapers.
Massive foreign investment flowing in made the city capability have to improve.
I am glad to see the constructions are spread up in many cities other than just one or two which shows a good sign.

In all of China provinces, I hardly keep track on the high rises. They're just simply too many of them, and they have very nice architecture. If one of them built in my city, it is going to be a gem for sure. *Sign*
