    'The Kelpies', a timelapse short film by award winning filmmaker Walid Salhab. The Kelpies are 30 metre high horse-head sculptures, standing next to a new extension to the Forth and Clyde Canal in The Helix, a new parkland project built to connect 16 communities in the Falkirk Council Area, Scotland.

    The South Korean government has just approved the plans to build an invisible tower outside of Seoul near the Incheon International Airport. Yes, near the airport, where planes will be landing and taking off on a daily basis. It doesn’t seem like the best location for an invisible tower. The building was designed by GDS Architects of Pasadena, California, and works by using cameras to capture real-time views from behind the building, then display them on the front using a wall of LEDs.
    "Through digital processing, images will be scaled, rotated and merged to create a seamless panoramic image that appears on the LED rows to create the illusion of invisibility. In essence, whatever is going on behind the building will be projected onto the front of the building."

    China's Sky City will be world's tallest building by year's end

    Array
    Home  |  Building


    The building is the 838-meter tall Sky City in Changsa, China. China's Sky City is a pre-fab skyscraper, one that is expected to become the world's tallest structure. And will be completed in record time (Burj Khalifa 828-meter). The total scheduled build time of Sky City is a meager seven months. That's a rate of 13 feet (more than a single story) per day. Even that incredibly ambitious goal is a step back toward sanity for Sky City's developers. The initial plan was to complete the structure in 90 days, which would have come out to roughly three floors a day. The Sky City is designed to resist a 9.0 earthquake. The Sky City has 220 stories, and it will cost $628 million. Watch the video of the how the project will come together and what it will ultimately look like.
