Amazing Sustainable 15-Story Hotel Built in 6 Days! [Video]

This incredible architecture news travels the Globe and shows everyone the impossible. Constructing a 15-story project doesn’t seem like a tough job in China though, where building the Ark Hotel didn’t even mean hiring workers through night time. The unique development took place in Changsa and already had its foundation. The construction was possible in just six days due to pre-fabricated columns and modern computerized techniques. The Ark Hotel is a sustainable, level 9 Earthquake-resistant, thermal-insulated building which also features sound-proofing systems. Even though the end result may not seem so spectacular to some, we salute this idea and can’t help imagining how it would be like for architecture projects of colossal importance and size to be built in just a few days. We’ve uploaded a time lapse video of the whole process for a better understanding of what took place on the construction site.  Looks a bit like the feature or what?

    What an utter load of rubbish, the efforts just been moved from a site into a factory, where everything’s mass produced resulting totally uninspiring, depressing to live in building stock.
    Only when Governments stop being in the pockets of PROFIT orientated developers, will social housing actually rise from the lowest common denominator to servicing the best interests of the end users.
