This deserves an update.

Excavation, foundation laying.

May 16, 2016



Foundations nearing completion.

No photos more recent than that. But I am reading the steel structure is supposed to be going up soon (or has already started) so I am going to go out to the site sometime to check the progress.

My Chinese is not the greatest but the name is 国华. That can be translated several ways and when there's no simple, direct way to translate a Chinese name into English they just go with the phonetic sound: gwoah whah

Individually 国 means nation/state and 花 means flower or magnificent.

华 is not 花 in a non-poetic situation. 华 is the character that symbolizes the embodiment of "Chineseness". 国华 loosely means the Chinese state and all the history that came with it. The duality of that meaning with magnificence is a way of saying that "Chineseness" is magnificent. So the tower literally and figuratively stands in the name of the magnificence of Chinese civilization/country as a whole.

Oops, I made a typo there. But that was a great explanation, thanks!
