Highrise Condo falls Over

The caisons on that should be 3 times as thick and I can barely see any rebar in them. It's like they used wire instead of rebar. Even if the ground doesn't get that muddy and saturated the caisons should still be way thicker. Quite sad really. I'm not an engineer, but it's pretty clear there the stuctural support of this building was weak (no pun intended).

Look at the crumbling concrete too - no rebar in sight. And, judging from the poor portland mix chinese schools were built with, I would venture the failure was related to structural collapse. Especially for those tall buildings, you can't just build something on MUD and expect it to stand for long!!!
