Seeing as I am in a city surrounded by sky scrapers, it seems fitting to also discuss about a new idea that I came across: Ground Scrapers. The InterContinental Shimao Wonderland began construction last year, and was set to be completed in late 2014, or early 2015. Though the current status is unknown, the designs are a pleasure to look at and study.
A unique promising design, which according to the graphics would have wonderful views outwards from the hotel. More render photographs are below.
