The Chinese Build A 15-Story Hotel In 6 Days But Someone’s Not Impressed

November 12th, 2010 | 2 comments | Posted by Jen

The Chinese have set some kind of new record for efficiency by building a 15-story hotel in only 6 days. Watch this cool time-lapse video to see how it was done:

The Ark Hotel, in the city of Changsha, was constructed with all prefab materials and is soundproofed, thermal-insulated, and reportedly capable of withstanding a magnitude 9 earthquake. The construction workers who put it together worked until 10 pm every night, and none were injured in the building process.

To me, this hotel is the paragon of Asian-ness, in its show-off-y efficiency–it was prefab, inexpensive, quickly-built, and generated only 1% construction waste–but I happen to know one Asian person who’s not so impressed by it.

That is Hardass Asian Parenting to the core!

Oh yeah, you built a building in 6 days?  SOFA KING WUT? And, while we’re on the subject, why couldn’t you do it in 5?!
