Astounding Chinese Architecture


For whatever reasons the builders of this humble dwelling apparently thought better of going through the troublesome process of removing the telegraph pole, instead opting to build around it…


Assuming it is indeed a real scene, then it seems all but certain to be China… You may recall similar scenes demonstrating the extreme quality of Chinese construction techniques.

    Where I live, I've seen something similar. Only it was just a balcony, not a whole house.

    China is a country to be feared.

    seen them real in a musium, quite astonishing.
    the whole peice of bridge was built with wood shaped like jigsaws, and not a single nail was used.

    now that's news = =

    ps: why not say that japan, korea, and other countries are stealing chinese cultures?
    -moon cake

    these make better news, not some stupid building or nude car models.

    how does this topic even relate to Japan anyways.
    getting tired of all these "Degrading China" topics.

    notice how every topic posted about China is about something bad? why not post their recent space craft?

    Better time than never to sell my idea to Hasbro. It's called "Chinese Construction Company". It's Jenga©, Monopoly© and the Game of Life© put together with the true game of Humiliation© and Punishment©. The game is simple: build Chinese tower and whoever makes it collapse must pay of the Chinese government and grieving families. Be careful, if you run out of money, you might face humiliation and punishment that has a "DeaTh®" option.

    Chinese Construction Company. FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!

    Oh and Japan is any better, when I stayed at a Ryokan in Osaka, the Neighours house had a live pole in the middle of the backyard and kids were playing around it.

    This is safe compared to that, at least you can tap into the grid for free. Or maybe the electrical company pays you have the pole there.

    I'm more interested in the fact that there seems to be a second story and yet no first story to the building. Or even any structural support for that matter. Who the hell thought that was a good idea?

    This is (quite literally) terribly common in East Asia - especially China, which goes some way of explaining their figures of dead and injured during earthquakes and similar natural disasters. On the other hand, I guess the building's inhabitants won't have to worry about flooding overly much, as long as it's not caused by broken dams in the area.

    You westerners always think it's the government. If you've lived in China you'd realize the problem of corruption and greed extends to the people. Money is #1; there's no honor or morality, just cold hard cash. Snatch a random toddler off the street, sell it to some American family that's willing to pay thousands for an 'orphan.' The problem is much deeper and more ingrained than the Communist Party.

    Anyways, I doubt the government had anything at all to do with this case.

    Are you kidding? We westerners have the same "money is #1" type of policies. I think the difference lies in the fact that our politicians get voted in, and thus, can't be (complete) asshats as they need the people's votes.

    Dunno about snatching , but I suspect they do -that- here as well >_>

    How has that have nothing to do with the government. When you build a building it has to be to code or you don't build it at all, and if you fuck up you have to fix it. Its the government that enforces building codes.

    I don't think you guys really have a feel for the amount of indifference that the Chinese have towards rules and regulations.

    Oh lawd. Some of you Amerifags have a lot to learn about courtesy.

    Colonized 500 years and an independent country even less, I think it will be a LONG time before you can lay claim to having any actual rules, when it comes to language.

    I'm not going to say American English is wrong, since it's a localised version, and has it's own quirks, as dialects do... but as long as you speak 'English' and not 'American,' you have no right to claim British spellings are wrong.

    Wait just a min, I don't mean to be nosy or something but didn't Artefact said "it seems all but certain to be China" and the tags also have "China", and "make in Chine" written in it. Personal I think it's is in China, and Artefact just said it in a satirical tone. Beside I can hardly believe that he could do something stupid like posted a picture of some a random country and said something like "Ohhhhh, look at this mess, maybe it's in China!!!". It's just doesn't make any sense, doesn't it??? Or are you just used a satirical tone too??? Though it's doesn't seem too much like it for me.

    Also... has nobody noticed that Artefact seems to have SUGGESTED that it's PROBABLY China.

    All those morons going 'lol, only in China' may want to go and find out whether those numberplates are standard anywhere, before being set in your judgement.

    I'm with Jesus Christ on this one.

    Looks like a 3-phase high-voltage power line, and by the way it is sloping down, there probably is a power transformer behind the house.
