Architecture To Watch In 2013: Part 1
January 2, 2013
If the developers behind the incredibly ambitious SkyCity project in Changsha aren’t as crazy as they seem, the world’s tallest skyscraper will be built in just 90 days, topping out sometime in March 2013. Broad Sustainable Building (BSB) believes it can accomplish its goal by using a modular building system that will allow workers to build at a frenzied pace of 5 stories a day, complete with fully integrated plumbing and electrical features. The system has been tested at smaller scales, as can be seen in this video showing a construction team erect a 30-story tower in just 15 days.
