I would think the name is "Inadequate/Vanity" building.

Why do I always think when i hear that China is going to build the 'world's biggest (insert your own word here)' that I think they are desperate to compensate for something?

The first big stone building in the world is the stepped pyramid in Saqquara, Egypt.

New Century Global Center, Chengdu, Sichuan.

 

From the out side it is rather spectacular, especially when you see it from the air either on approach or having just taken off from the airport.  The inside however is not that exciting.  There is a hotel (I think there will be 2 eventually), an overpriced water park, a generic shopping mall and lots and lots of offices.

I don't know about the first, but the current biggest building in China is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai City, United Arab Emirates county, Shanzhai Province.

How about this one?   IMHO it doesn't look so good in real life.  yeah, I know it's not finished, but I still don't think it looks as good as KK Building or IFC Buildings.

 

 

Ping An International Finance Center — Shenzhen, Gaungdong, China. Height (when completed): 2,125.98 feet / 647.99 meters

 

Eorthisio:

The change of cladding ruined the Ping An Center, they opted for a boring blue-greyish color instead of the golden one as shown in the artworks.

 

Also it seems that they won't build the spire finally, so that means the building won't even be a megatall, at 588m, megatalls start at 600m.

 

Daniel Lau still had fun time climbing on it though : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXSZNxeHGYA

diverdude1:

oh!  that explains why it looks so vastly different in real life... I just thought I was looking at some sort of protective construction cladding or something... it just looks unfinished... I don't know how to say what I'm trying to say... lol... it just looked to me like they weren't building it properly.  not that I know anything about building skyscrapers.  but the cranes at the top are Awesome!!!   My dream job is to be one of those crane operators!   too bad I'm also acrophobic.

 

darn... sure wish I had a VPN

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
