Chinese building.  The photographs says it all. 
 
 

The 13 storied building high house lies on the ground

In the weekend’s bizarre news, a nearly finished, newly constructed building in Shanghai toppled over, killing one worker.

As can be seen in the photo below. The 13-story apartment building collapsed . The development, known as “Lotus Riverside,” has a total of 629 units, 489 of which have already been sold. Now buyers are clamouring to get their money back, and authorities are making efforts to reassure them

 

 



Investigations attribute the accident to the excavations for the construction of a garage under the collapsed building. Large quantities of earth were removed and dumped in
a landfill next to a nearby creek


the pilings used in the Lotus Riverside development, made of prestressed, precast concrete piles, are outlawed in Hong Kong because
they aren’t strong enough to support the kind of ultra-high buildings that are common in Hong Kong. But in mainland China, they are
often used because buildings there are typically much shorter.

In order to construct garages under the building, Earth was removed and dumped on the side of the building. 
Then the rain came.
 
 

 
Heavy rain made the ground muddy


The building began to sink on one side ending in the building toppling over.




The result was the eighth wonder of the world


 just enough room to escape what would have been a far more destructive domino effect involving other structures in the 11-building complex



















13 such buildings were planned, without cellars, built only with hollow bars in the ground.


the same people make the toys of your children, and want to build the  Volvo … !!!!!
