Can you imagine the size of the bottle of beer this opens?



The financial district in Pudong must be getting wild to be building a beer opener of this scale. This 101-story highrise will be the world's tallest building when it opens in 2008. Well it will be the tallest just long enough for them to claim it for a season before other parts of the world compete with their phallic symbols.

All jesting aside. The reason there is a big cut-out at the top is to give it some resilience against the wind. In many aspects this is as innovative as buildings get. It still looks like a giant beer bottle though.

I would love to see a large Tsingtao beer sign on the top

Hey Mark Dowds!! Long time no see!! How are you? Good blog by the way - I like lime green... I had a dream the other night with you in it - we were in some room looking across a beautiful bay at a sunrise - it was quite amazing. the sky and the clouds were really dark and low and the sun was just coming up beyond some rocks and changing the sky to the most amazing reds and oranges. There were loads of people in the dream - I think it was some kind of house where kids are fostered... anyway. I thought i Would let you know in case its prophetic! Hope you are having a good day. Emma D.

What a coincidence - I just had a dream about beer. A really big beer.

it looked a bit like this - same black clouds and red sky although the sun was coming up on the far left of the bay in my dream through rocks and was further away.
