China does not practice simple capitalism. They practice a combination of communism, state capitalism, and private sector capitalism. This, coupled with the single-party system, has provided a unique and magnificent socio-economic experiment.

Anyone else think this kind of architecture combined with glass walls seems very futuristic.
It would be cool if the whole city looked like that.

communism/capitalism mixing is nothing too unique...the USSR followed the same system, more or less, albeit with a very aggressive foreign policy. the unique thing about china is the land/population ratio.

For the excavator in the first picture I posted, they only had a small crane so they took it apart and then assembled it on the roof.

It is unique but I don't find it magnificent at all.

Nah, this doesn't need the spire, just the propulsion fuel to lift off!
