  • China Zun Becomes Highest Building in Beijing

    The unfinished China Zun building became the highest skyscraper in Beijing on Thursday at 333 meters, dwarfing the nearby China World Trade Center Tower 3. Located in Beijing's Central Business District, also known as CBD, the building, constructed on a site of 11,478 square meters, will stand at a whopping 528 meters high with 108 floors and 7 underground stories. The façade features ultra-white glass and the elevators will be able to take visitors straight to the top floor at a staggering height of 524 meters. The building’s design was inspired by an ancient Chinese wine vessel, according to the CITIC Group, the building's developer. Zeng Yunping, the chief operating manager of the project, said many firsts have been made, such as a 500-meter elevator that only takes 10 seconds t...

    BEIJING — The Chinese government is embarking on an ambitious project to merge several megacities with the capital Beijing and create a super metropolis capable of housing as many as 130 million people, the New York Times reported. The megalopolis, called Jing-Jin-Ji, would link Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei province, will be spread over 82,000 square miles, about six times the size of New York City, but with a population of as much as one third of the United States. The plan aims to revamp northern China's economy, by moving parts of Beijing's bureaucracy, factories and hospitals to the hinterland, while offering new services that are lacking in areas around Beijing such as bus terminals, schools, cinemas and parks. A subway and better light rail system are also under construction and wi...

  • Smog-eating buildings the solution to Beijing's smog?

    Heavy smog is a growing problem in Beijing and 25 provinces in China. When even adding more trees and plants can't help China clean up its air, what sort of solution is out there? A smog-eating building! Designed by Berlin's Elegant Embellishments, this innovative tile material on the Torre de Especialidades Tower outside a hospital in Mexico City mitigates smog by neutralizing exhaust emitted by hundreds of passing cars each day. A layer of titanium dioxide, which is also found in sunblock and paint, is applied to the tiles on the building's beehive-shaped facade. When exposed to ultraviolet rays from the sun, titanium dioxide breaks down smog into safer chemicals, such as water and carbon dioxide. The unique beehive shape also increases the surface area that can react with sunlight....

The façade features ultra-white glass and the elevators will be able to take visitors straight to the top floor at a staggering height of 524 meters. The building’s design was inspired by an ancient Chinese wine vessel, according to the CITIC Group, the building's developer. Zeng Yunping, the chief operating manager of the project, said many firsts have been made, such as a 500-meter elevator that only takes 10 seconds to reach the 28th floor. "So far, the China Zun project has 12 technological innovations, in particular, the intelligent construction equipment integration platform, which has been developed by us independently, has 14 patents, six of which are patents for invention. Experts have validated that this platform is of the finest in the world, and will be the key technology for China to build skyscrapers higher than 1,000 meters," said Zeng. The skyscraper will serve a variety of functions, such as an office building and a tourist destination, according to the group. The building's top floor will also function as a sightseeing platform and cafe, providing visitors with a panoramic view of the CBD. The project will cost an estimated 24 billion yuan (3.8 billion US dollars). Started in 2013, the China Zun building is scheduled to be completed in July 2017, and begin operation in October 2018.

Exclusive Video: "Beijing City View", Hebei Province, People's Republic of China, Asia, Earth. Founded: c. 723 b.c.; First Known as Beijing: 1421 Location: North China Plain Time Zone: 8 pm Chinese time=noon Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) Ethnic Composition: Han, 96.2% Elevation: 30–40 m (100–130 ft) Latitude and Longitude: 39°55'N, 166°25'E Coastline: None Climate : Continental monsoon climate in a temperate zone, with long winters and hot, rainy summers Annual Mean Temperature: 12°C (53°F); January–4°C (24°F); July 26°C (79°F) Average Annual Precipitation: 635 mm (25 in) Government: Centrally administered by the national government Weights and Measures: Metric system, with some use of traditional Chinese units Monetary Units: Yuan (also called kuai); Monetary system called Renminbi ("people's currency") (abbreviation: Rmb) Telephone Area Codes: 10 (Beijing area code); 86 (China country code) 1. Introduction Located on the North China Plain in the north-central part of the country, Beijing (also known as Peking) is the capital of the People's Republic of China and its second-largest city. As the political and cultural center of one of the world's largest and oldest countries almost continuously for nearly 800 years, Beijing has had a colorful and fascinating history, from its days as the aristocratic imperial "center of the world" to revolution, foreign occupation, and civil war in the twentieth century. During the last two decades of the twentieth century, Beijing was transformed yet again, as the economic liberalization and modernization of the post-Mao Zedong era turned the formerly austere Communist capital into a bustling commercial metropolis and tourist center and home to a thriving consumer economy. (Mao Zedong, 1893–1976, was the founder of the People's Republic of China and ruled from 1949 to 1959, but he remained chairman of the politburo until his death.) 2. Getting There: Beijing is situated in the southern part of the North China Plain, with the Taihang and Yanshan mountains to the north and west and a flat plain to the southeast, leading to the Bohai Sea, where the five rivers that run through the city come together and empty out. About two-thirds of the city's total land area is hilly. Highways: Highways radiate outward in all directions from Beijing: northeast to Chengdo; eastward to Tangshan; southeast to Tanggu and Tianjin; southward to Hengshui, Baoding, and Shijiazhuang; southwest to Laiyuan; and northwest to Zhangliahou. Bus and Railroad Service: Trains are the most commonly used mode of passenger transportation in China, and Beijing is the nation's rail hub, serving as the terminus for many rail lines. Service is provided between Beijing and all Chinese provinces except Tibet. Beijing has four main train stations, of which the largest is the recently built West station in the southwest part of the city. Nearly every city in China, as well as many towns, can be reached from Beijing by train. Long-distance bus service is used primarily to travel between Beijing and its suburbs, or to nearby cities. However, some bus lines travel as far as Shanghai or Qungdao. Airports: Beijing Capital Airport, located about 30 kilometers (19 miles) northwest of the central city, is China's major international airport. Its domestic and international terminals are located in the same building, with a new international terminal under construction. Scheduled flights connect Beijing with Shanghai, Canton, and all other major Chinese cities and tourist sites. There are direct flights to many international capitals, including New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Rome, Tokyo, and Berlin. Nanyuan Airport, south of Beijing, is used for domestic flights.

BEIJING — The Chinese government is embarking on an ambitious project to merge several megacities with the capital Beijing and create a super metropolis capable of housing as many as 130 million people, the New York Times reported. The megalopolis, called Jing-Jin-Ji, would link Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei province, will be spread over 82,000 square miles, about six times the size of New York City, but with a population of as much as one third of the United States. The plan aims to revamp northern China's economy, by moving parts of Beijing's bureaucracy, factories and hospitals to the hinterland, while offering new services that are lacking in areas around Beijing such as bus terminals, schools, cinemas and parks. A subway and better light rail system are also under construction and will open in the next three to five years. A new bridge over the Chaobai River will connect to Beijing. With this new super city, the Chinese government aims to assign new economic rules to the cities: Beijing will focus on culture and technology, Tianjin will become a research base for manufacturing and Hebei will more likely focus on minor industries, such as textiles. The entire project, which has the support of President Xi Jinping, is likely to see a deep reconsideration of how taxes are collected and distributed within the territory, which would mean instituting property taxes and allowing local governments to keep them. "This is a huge project and is more complicated than roads and rail," Wang Hu, a historian of Beijing's development was quoted by the New York Times as saying. "But if it can succeed, it will change the face of northern China." -----------------------------------------­-------------------- Welcome to TomoWorld, where we animate the biggest headlines from around the world.

The officials say the buildings where China's already laid out military-length airstrips could be considered an military escalation. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson angered China last month after he said it should be stopped from building its South China Sea islands. He compared Beijing's island claims to Russia taking Crimea from Ukraine. Since then both Tillerson and Trump have walked back their language with Trump even pledging to honor the U.S. "One China" policy this month in a phone call with Chinese President Xi Jinping. Officials said the new structures don't pose a significant threat to American forces in the region- given how visible and vulnerable they are. They say instead, it appears to be a political test of the waters to see how far Trump will go.

From Beijing National Aquatics Center to Shanghai World Financial Center here are 20 Most Amazing Architecture in China! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr # 10 Shanghai World Financial Center The Shanghai World Financial Center is one of the tallest skyscrapers in the world and easily the tallest building in Shanghai. It is distinguished by its unique shape, 101 stories and 1,621 feet/494.3 meters tall. It is a mixed space that has a ground level mall, hotels, office spaces, and observational decks. # 9 Beijing National Stadium The Beijing National Stadium was built in 2008 for the 2008 Summer Olympics. It’s also known as the Bird’s Nest because of the lattice structure that covers the whole structure. It has a capacity of 91,000 total and had a record attendance of nearly just as many people. Currently, it does not have much use. # 8 Beijing National Aquatics Center The Beijing National Aquatics Center was another structure built for the 2008 Summer Olympics. Although it’s not actually in the shape of a cube, it is colloquially known as the Water Cube.
