In China, A 30-Story Building in Fifteen Days

This is a community post, untouched by our editors.

What if I told you that a thirty-story, earthquake resistant, green building could be built in fifteen days? Believe it or not, this is exactly what happened in Dongting Lake, located in the Hunan Province of China. Built by Broad Group, a sustainable building company, this hotel could withstand a 9.0 magnitude earthquake, is five times more energy efficient and produces up to twenty times purer air – built all in a matter of 360 hours. See for yourself in this time-lapsed video!
