The fastest building in the world.

 

Construction can be a slow process – The bigger the building, the more time it takes right? Apparently not, if you take a look at this time-lapse video of a 30-story, 183,00 square foot hotel that recently went up in China’s Hunan Province – It’s total construction time? Only 360 hours!

Two hundred super fast construction workers worked round the clock for 15-days, putting the sustainable prefabricated modules onto a steel structure. And for those who believe that this can only result in bad architecture, think again.

The Chinese firm behind this hotel says it is strong enough to withstand a 9.0 magnitude earthquake – or in other words, much stronger than structures constructed in the old-fashioned way! And that’s not all – the building is also ‘green’ – It is five times more energy-efficient than similar structures and, generates a fraction of the waste!
