these are farmers houses that stretch for about 100 miles between Hangzhou and Shanghai. If youve seen
them in person the sheer scale of the devlopment is amazing, it basically looks like one vast urban suburb rather than
countryside. It took me over 2 hrs to get through it by train.

All the houses have steep roofs, turrets, towers and even onion domes, by the thousand. Its one of the most amazing 'urban'
things Ive seen - seriously if anyones in Shanghai, take the train to Hangzhou and look out of your right window...


Theyre all built for free by the progressive local councils:

From the air you can start to see the scale of it, for 150 km

^seriously you need to see it to believe it. Some stretches are made up of hundreds of pagodas, others are thousands of onion domes, others thousands of turrets and fairytale towers. When I first saw them I thought - tacky. But after a while, the sheer scale of it all amazed me, it just never seemed to end.
Its one thing building a development of pomo rooftops and balconies and towers, its another having a whole 'city' themed that way. A bit like Athens brutalism - boring on its singular own, glorious in its whole.#

Moreover theyre not suburbs but 'farmland'. Chinese suburbs look very different.

Most of what I saw was like this, but with midnight blue Russian domes, as far as the horizon:

Amazing, really hope this gets built.

The apartment looks like the middle section of the Oriental Pearl TV Tower

I think it would even look better without the globe on top.
However, it is cray to build in that rural location.
