Constructing a fully completed, ready to open 30 story hotel in just 15 days might seem an impossible task, unless you’re considering a cardboard hotel of course. In China however this is not only possible but it has been done, setting the record for the fastest construction of a building of this size.
Built near the Dongting Lake in the Hunan Province of China the Broad Group was able to construct this glistening 17,000sqm glass wrapped hotel with only 200 workers. At the end of the 360 hours the hotel rooms were completed, fully furnished and the hotel ready to open.
Presented for your viewing pleasure is the hypnotic time-lapse video of the buildings construction. Day and night the construction continues; relentlessly the multi-faceted building grows with steel and glass falling into place.
