Wow.. nice tower. The rejected proposal lookslike the 101 LOL
China is getting very modern now... Without involving the ancient chinese architecture in it. Kinda becoming like Japan, without showing its own culture in the Supertalls.

Europe doesn't use merlons in its skyscrapers. Are we becoming like Japan too?

By iLH. This man walked to the construction site but he didn't take any pic showing how tall it is already. Ridiculous, isn't it?

Another awesome tower! This is a great shot!

That reminds me, do they still use bamboo scaffolding in China/Hong Kong today? I saw it on a documentary some months back.

Thx

I know bamboo can be strong and flexible, but it still looks quite dangerous to me, especially when used on one of these highrises.

bamboo is still used all over China/ SE Asia because its stronger than steel, renewable (some species can grow 6ft in a day), and most importantly flexible, especially during monsoon/ typhoon season.

Yeah, so I've been hearing. What kind of material/s do they use to tie the individual bamboo poles together? I saw a woman binding them together on this programme but I can't remember what she used..

yep, its meant to be the newest eco material - light, amazingly strong, relatively heat resistant, malleable and most importantly renewable. Wood takes 20 years to be harvested, bamboo one year for the equivalent amount. Most woods, metals and plastics are replaceable with bamboo.

Thx for the info guys! Didn't realise bamboo had so many uses. Good to see I suppose. Really like that last shot of the bamboo room/house ... it has a Japanese feel to it.

Better render of the final version. 56 floors. The height of the top floor is 286.8m. Maximum height still preliminary at 300m.

I have dwarf bamboo growing in my yard, not supposed to grow very fast, but it still sprouts like a weed. No maintenance required either.
