After reading my own post I thought of a conspiracy. The St. Louis Arch is the gateway to the West and was conceived of around the time America became a world power. Is this the new gateway to the east hailing the arrival of china as the new dominant world power?

Maybe they'll be connected and we'll have a way to bypass the TSA when we travel?

Too quick to grope!



Peace

So the 9/11 steel went to China and they end up building this contraption. Not sure what to make of it. Can't decide if it's too much or if it's kind of cool looking.

Maybe if they light it up at night with all the led lights on, I'll be able to come up with a definitive answer.

Can you just imagine the electric bill with that thing on?

considering the size of the building the electric bill wont go up very much from 12,000 leds.... im actually surprised they can light the whole exterior with that few

as for if its over the top
its not any more over the top than most of the expensive new buildings in dubai (so yeah way over the top and the resources would be better spent on things other than showing off)
that said its an awesome piece of architecture

Never thought about something useful like, oh I don't know...feeding the hungry? Nah, silly.

But then again, I'm not in China.




This was my thought, exactly. If all the money that mankind wasted or hoarded were spread around, there would be no need for hunger or want, for anyone, ever. But I guess that's a really commie socialist thing for me to think. Who needs all that hippy crap when we can have giant rings and war?

Seems to me that by energizing that thing using the right frequency, they may be able to alter the weather with it. I suppose they could have built any huge building and accomplish the same thing.

Ahh another provincial government that's got too much money to burn.
Wonder who holds the majority of the contracts to build such a beast and who issued them ?
99% there's a strong relation to the both, sadly this is how higher up's and the rich make money in China.
There's alot of other things that money could of gone towards in Liaoning.

Yup, so much different in The Western Nations. America really needs to learn how this is done...

what a waste.

That much material, man power, money.

This is just dumb.

Oooh, a big ring....what does it do? Well, check this out. It has LED lights....ehhh, ehhh, cool huh?

How about you build something your country needs, like women's shelters, or schools for your people, or how about you modernize and improve living conditions in the shack towns your workers live in. Or, I don't know, you build infrastructure in a developing nation and send your business there. Like build some power plants in Africa, or water treatment centers, or how about you just give humanitarian aid in whatever form you please like the west does.

No, ring thingy, that is what we want.

I hope a plane crashes into it and the whole thing turns into a pile of scrap.

The same could be said for any country in the world. There are always better ways to spend money.

What I'm saying is.... They blow money on the most stupidest and impractical of constructions! Each city in China has massive ego's, they each try and compete with each other to who's got the tallest or biggest ...........
Take to T.V tower in Shanghai, most of the time you're paying to see a blanket of smog once you get up the top, and as a T.V tower it's hopeless.
My point is Chinese have a habit of building impractical crap to 'show face'.

Very cool. Thanks. ...and I agree - if China has so much extra cash lying around why not feed the hungry?

How is that different to any governing body anywhere on this planet?

China might do so on constructions as other countries do however it seems better than wasting money on designing and developing weapons of mass and minor destruction.

Not bad for that money.

A council near to where i live, was just given £11 Million to restore a decrepit old iron pier.

Bet one of these would have been infinitely better along the sea front, than a rusty old iron eyesore.

I'm just happy they are showing us some cool architecture here. Seriously, it's the 21st century and we still build these ridiculously boring rectangles of wood and plaster.

Presumably you wish the same on the Statue of Liberty? That feeds no starving and cures no sick either.

Monument building, follies and vanity construction is a pursuit as old as humanity. Particularly when control of the public finances isn't massively accountable.

The Chinese aren't really any worse in that regard. We might as well enjoy the aesthetic fruits of their industry while they have it.

They'll be a fat unambitious tv addicted stagnating society like us before you know it.
