This is the most awkward, but unique building that I've ever seen. I wonder how are they going to build thar L-shaped skybridge like 180-200m in the sky.

Some of the images are amusing. Not so much for the building.....but for the East Third Ring Road being shown virtually empty. This road is jammed solid 19 hours a day (0500 to 2400).

Curently, this building is a hole in the ground. It has laos raised a lot of protest from the public and many Chinese architects. Almost as many as "the egg", Andreu's National Theatre opposite Zhongnanhai, which can be clearly seen from various points in the Forbidden City.
