  • Beijing's Consuming So Much Water The City's Sinking

    Beijing is consuming so much water it's causing the city to sink at an extreme rate. A new study using satellite imagery and radar technology confirmed the ground level is sinking each year by roughly 4 inches.  Beijing doesn't have enough water to begin with. It's the fifth-most water stressed city in the world. Meanwhile, two-thirds of the water the city uses comes from the ground.  According to The Guardian, more than 10,000 wells have been drilled in the Beijing area, and when water is used from them, the nearby soil condenses and hardens.  The study's authors warned if ground water continues to be pumped at excessive rates, the city's 20 million citizens could be in danger. The central business district is sinking particularly fast, and the researchers predict trains could be affe...

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 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.

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. During the Olympics swimmers broke 25 world records but after the Olympics ended officials struggled to find a use for the building. Now, after a 200 million Yuan (you-en) revamp it has turned into an indoor Water Park. It is also slated to host curling events at the 2022 Winter Olympics. # 7 The Lotus Building In Wujin, China is the Lotus Building, a building that looks like a floating, lit lotus flower floating on a pool of water. It was built by the Australian architecture firm Studio 505 and obviously modeled after the iconic lotus flower. It is a flashy building that serves as the building for the city planning bureau - a major upgrade for a bureaucratic government committee. # 6 Ring of Life The Ring of Life is a super clean structure in Fushun, China and stands at 515 feet tall. It is a giant steel structure in the shape of a giant shape. It has an observation deck, and it is lit up by 12,000 LED lights. The strange thing is that it is built out in the middle of nowhere as a way to attract a tourist industry to the area. It used around 3,000 tons of steel and cost around $16 million US dollars. # 5 New Century Global Center The New Century Global Center is known as the biggest building by volume in the world. It is famous for the fact that 20 of the Sydney Opera House could fit inside of it. Inside of this center in Chengdu is an amazing amount of facilities like an entire University Complex, one of the biggest shopping centers in the world, an entire IMAX theater, and a faux Mediterranean village. # 4 Phoenix International Media Center This building is the home for Phoenix Satellite Television and is officially called the Phoenix International Media Center but is colloquially known as the Little Bird’s Nest. It is reportedly modeled after a Mobius strip which is why it has a round shape and continuous surface. It has office space and recording studios for everything in the production pipeline of Phoenix TV which is a Hong Kong broadcasting firm that distributes to mainland China. It is not only stylish but takes green practices into account, and the surfaces of the building collect rainwater to be recycled. # 3 Zoho Peaks The Zoho Peaks in Beijing were designed to look like a cluster of mountains, and they certainly live up to their namesake. They are a mixed space building utilized as both a retail space and office complex, but primarily it decorates the Beijing skyline with a unique looking building. # 2 Coiling Dragon Cliff This skin-tingling glass walk is the Coiling Dragon skywalk is installed 984 feet up on the Tianmen (chee-ann-min) Mountain in one of China’s national parks. It is a 100 meter or 110-yard long walk on an almost completely transparent glass structure. Parts of the skywalk overlook the popular Tongtian Avenue, a mountain path that has 99 turns and snakes into the Tianmen mountain. The walkway is more than stable, but you can see tourists clinging to the cliff afraid of falling while the bolder of heart sit directly on the glass overlooking the deathly fall. # 1 Linked Hybrid This building from Steven Holl Architecture firm has been called a city within a city because of the plethora of different facilities that use the space inside. The Linked Hybrid has been named the best tall building of Australia and Asia because it comes with office space, education facilities, even a jazz club. The building itself consists of eight different towers that are linked together by sky bridges. It’s a compound that seeks to streamline city life by minimizing the amount of time people have to commute every day.

See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/user/nurettinodunya/playlists Skyscrapers in Beijing: This list of tallest buildings in Beijing ranks skyscrapers in Beijing, the capital city of the People's Republic of China, by height. The tallest completed building in Beijing is currently the 81-storey China World Trade Centre Tower III at 330 metres (1,083 ft) tall. The second-tallest building in the city is the Fortune Plaza Office Building 1, which stands 260 metres (853 ft) tall with 63 stories.and the third-tallest is the Park Tower, standing at 250 m (820 ft), also containing 63 stories. The Park Tower is the tallest building out of the three-building Beijing Yintai Centre, which includes two adjoining 186 m (610 ft), 42-storey skyscrapers. The history of skyscrapers in Beijing began in 1959 with the completion of the National Minority Hotel.Beijing's skyline gradually expanded upward at a modest rate for three decades. The completion of the China World Trade Center Tower 1 in 1989 marked the beginning of Beijing's first building boom that lasted ten years. During this time period, four skyscrapers taller than 150 m (492 ft) were completed, including the 208 m (682 ft) Jing Guang Centre, which stood as the tallest building in Beijing from 19902006. A second, much larger boom began in 2004 and continues into the present, where twelve skyscrapers taller than 150 m (492 ft) were finished. Many of the skyscrapers completed during both building booms are located in Chaoyang District, including the Beijing TV Centre, Park Tower and Fortune Plaza Office Building 1, all of which served as the tallest building in the city for a time.As of December 2008, there are 895 completed highrise buildings in Beijing. Another famous project in the city is the 234 m (768 ft), 51-storey CCTV Headquarters building, nicknamed "Big Shorts". The skyscraper is not a traditional tower, but a continuous loop of five horizontal and vertical sections, creating an irregular grid on the building’s facade with an open center. With 389,079 square metres (4,188,010 sq ft) of office space, the skyscraper will become the largest office building in China and the second-largest in the world, after the Pentagon. As of December 2008, there 45 projects under construction and proposed in Beijing.Wikipedia

Demolition crew in Beijing improvise to get their job done. I took this from my living room window. This demolition project is 200m away from the tallest building in Beijing in the heart of the CBD. As you will see the developer who has bought the land, Soho China, is knocking down the existing building while trying to save as much money as possible and with little regard to the safety of the workers. They need to get the job down as quick as they can with very few men and machines. The only way is to risk their lives ad as shown in this video.

Beijing will begin building the city's tallest skyscraper in its central business district. The 108-story 510-meter building, called "China Zun", is shaped like a zun, an ancient Chinese wine vessel, and will be completed within five years. BEIJING - A groundbreaking ceremony for a new skyscraper took place in Beijing's central business district (CBD) on Monday, marking the beginning of construction on what will eventually be the city's tallest skyscraper. The design of the China Zun building was inspired by an ancient Chinese wine vessel, according to the CITIC Group, the building's developer. The building will serve a variety of functions, serving as both an office building and a tourist destination, according to the group. The China Zun will dwarf the nearby China World Trade Center Tower 3, a 330-meter-tall building that is currently the tallest in the city. Aiming to top China's more environmentally-friendly skyscrapers, the group said that the building will feature the latest energy-saving technology in order to encourage the efficient consumption of energy. The building's top floor will function as a sightseeing platform and cafe, providing visitors with a panoramic view of the CBD, the group said.

Behold The Future...SMOG FREE MOVER - We'll keep you updated on the construction of the world's first Smog Free Tower and its impact! We humans have created machines to enhance ourselves, we invented the wheel and cars to liberate ourselves and travel. But now these machines are striking back, making air extremely polluted in high-density cities. In some cities, this pollution is visible. In others, air pollutants and smog may be invisible, but the impact on our daily lives and health is very real. We believe we should do more, not less, and make modern cities livable again. This is why we are building the Smog Free Tower, the largest air-purifier in the world. The Smog Free Tower creates smog free air zones in the largest and most polluted cities around the world. The Smog Free tower allows people to breathe and experience what clean air in a city really means. In this project we combine high-tech science, design and imagination, and we can only create it with you! The aim of this project is to make smog more tangible to people and to reduce waste. So what do we do with the smog we accumulate? By compressing the filtered smog particles, we can create awesome and unique jewelry. Each Smog Free Cube literally contains the smog out of 1000 cubic meters of air! It’s a beautiful way of carrying the message of this project with you and perceiving the tangible environmental impact you’ve made by supporting this project. The Smog Free Tower is the first step of the Smog Free Movement: our dream of a clean future in which people work together to stop pollution. We believe that the Smog Free Tower provides a unique opportunity to get people to understand the issue of air pollution through direct experience. The bubble of clean air that the Smog Free Tower generates will be a place that brings people together to work and think about how we can free our cities of smog. Let’s kick start the Smog Free Movement and build the Smog Free Tower together! This campaign is to fund the first pilot of the Tower in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The tower will travel around the world, from city to city. From Beijing to Paris. From Los Angeles to Mexico City. The tower lets citizens experience the value of breathing clean air. The Smog Free Tower is the first step in working together to free cities permanently of smog. Together we can fight air pollution. In areas affected by severe air pollution, the Smog Free Tower will harvest enough smog to produce over 3500 Smog Free Cubes per day. A total of 1 million Smog Free Cubes will be made to support the message of The Smog Free Movement. The Smog Free Cubes are first of all developed to make sure the Smog Free Tower produces no waste. All the smog we collect, is processed into a Smog Free Cube and turned into an exclusive piece of jewelry. The Smog Free Movement stands for a better and cleaner future we can create together. The Smog Free Cubes are the building blocks of that future. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1777606920/the-smog-free-tower/description -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Daan Roosegaarde's Smog Free Tower opens in Rotterdam https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IWaSHJCE80

Beijing is consuming so much water it's causing the city to sink at an extreme rate. A new study using satellite imagery and radar technology confirmed the ground level is sinking each year by roughly 4 inches.  Beijing doesn't have enough water to begin with. It's the fifth-most water stressed city in the world. Meanwhile, two-thirds of the water the city uses comes from the ground.  According to The Guardian, more than 10,000 wells have been drilled in the Beijing area, and when water is used from them, the nearby soil condenses and hardens.  The study's authors warned if ground water continues to be pumped at excessive rates, the city's 20 million citizens could be in danger. The central business district is sinking particularly fast, and the researchers predict trains could be affected.  More than 40 other Chinese cities have been found to be sinking as well. Shanghai, China's most populated city, has dropped more than 6 feet since 1921.   The huge expansion of skyscrapers and other heavy buildings in China has made the sinking worse.  Beyond China, Mexico City has sunk 32 feet in the last 60 years because of similar water consumption.  Both Mexico City and Jakarta, Indonesia, are sinking at a rate of roughly 11 inches per year.  This video includes clips from PBSFrance 24, International Business TimesNTDTVCCTV and images from Getty Images.
