Sci-Fi Hotel in an Abandoned Chinese Quarry

The Songjiang district near Shanghai has become a popular destination for tourists...apparently fantastically wealthy tourists with an eye for the peculiarly sustainable. This planned sci-fi luxury hotel with underwater rooms and express viagra delivery indoor waterfalls has significantly more humble beginnings. It's located in an 100 foot deep abandoned quarry.

Using an already disturbed site like this is key when building in ecologically sensitive areas. And the architects have done an amazing job incorporating the design of the hotel into it's humble surroundings. But the sustainability doesn't stop there. The hotel extends some of the natural landscape over itself by covering it's ground-level roof in dirt and greenery. The green roof would also keep the hotel cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Even cooler, because the viagra alternetives quarry was dug so deep, it will be relatively inexpensive to harness the geothermal energy of online pharmacy viagra the site. There's no word on exactly how much of its power will be generated this way, but it could possibly provide all of the hotels heating and electricity needs.

Aside from all that, the hotel looks ridiculously cool, check out this picture as well.

If this project successfully worked, other countries might as well adopt this. The exploited and abandoned quarry site will have another use - a business & leisure haven.

The architectural design of the proposed hotel is amazing. But the engineering plan and design is quite poor. Why? Because the hotel is located in geohazard area. The engineer(s) should conduct a thorough environmental impact study in the area before the hotel is built. Environmental site assessment is needed for such project located in environmentally sensisitive area.
Mind blowing!!!

steven, what makes you think they don't already have a plan for water level control? It's obvious that they will... people who design these structures are smart. They aren't going to tramadol next day delivery leave something so obvious unthought of. And Rey... if the project is viagra sales on line being persued, I can 0 gerantee you that a "thorough environmental impact study" has been conducted. They wouldn't buid a structure without knowing that it would be safe for people and the environment both. Just because the artical doesn't talk about it doesn't mean it hasn't been done.

I think the design is absolutly amazing!

great idea- good area
written by big daddy, August 11, 2007
I think we can all agree that this is a good thing. The design, sustainability, and building site are all fantastic. The best part, in my opinion, is the area- geographically -in which it is being built. Ecologically sound tourism is a far better way to generate income (in a country that can be considered borderline 3rd-World) than the natural alternatives to viagra highly poluting manufacturing taking place there now. Thankfully, the Chinese government is slowly catching on to the fact that poluting their land is not, really, a good thing :P. P.S. Even though I have no room to talk, we could all use a little more spell-check and punctuation-check. ;D :
