As I'm studying civil engineering and focusing primarily on concrete and steel structures, I'm intrigued by this. I often joke about how people should make huge, rectangular concrete blocks without any windows, just to make my job easier.
I mean, on one hand I can appreciate how concrete itself can be such a versatile material - it can be used to support an oil rig in the North Sea, or in this case, make a really strong impression. The pure function of concrete is mindblowing, but as Fang said, it kind of looks like a terrorist cell.
This one is interesting. I can't imagine how much trouble they had to go through in order to figure our the wind loads on this. It's going to be a pretty significant contribution. It's a pretty impressing building structurally, and it really shows what's possible with concrete as a material.Click
