I saw this on the news the other day... And I was like... WOW. That is some piece of work. I can't find a link to the video of it. (I'll keep looking cos it's awesome)

I was thinking of going to the world expo, not to far from here! If they do build this bad boy then I'll definatly want to go and have a play.

Shanghai Daily Article - With Artist's Impression



The chimney, at the eastern end of the Puxi side of the Expo site, where the old Nanshi Power Plant was located, will be transformed into the 201-meter-tall World Expo Harmony Tower.

It will be capable of handling 650 visitors every hour and will include tracks and cars similar to a rollercoaster that will wrap around the tower and take people to the top for a view of the skyline.


Very impressive and a good use of resources, not something China is well known for... Maybe things are a'changin.
