BTW Is this just a concept, planned, under construction, already built or a PhotoShop job (looks like it's leaning & it's taken from a bridge yet I can see glass reflections with other buildings in it)??

looks like a feature of the larger building, kind of like the "air shard" at the imperial war museum in manchester, uk.

Oh !



I've seen another tiny SWFC in my garage !

How was it brought here ?

Might be the aliens, with their size-reducing lasers...

It's real! And it's already built a couple years ago. The glass reflection is probably because the picture was taken in a car.

I think it's just a part of a IT company's plant. But i have no idea why they built this mini "SWFC".

Btw, the bridge is very old, built in 1930s, with 2 floors. (The railway is underneath).

It's not a render.It's UT starcom's R & D plant in Hangzhou.
And you can find it and the bridge from Google Earth.

its a tower feature that resembles swfc. What is its purpose though. compared proportionally to the plant it seems to be an functionless architectural feature. Enlighten me please
