    Sheesh, saw the headline and feared a bimbo explosion. 🙂

    Nice sky. I like this one a lot.

    I saw a number of buildings like that in Asia. A colleague of mine who had been an architectural draftsman in his younger days said: “One thing I love about China: In the US we ask ‘can we build this?’, in China they ask ‘why couldn’t we build this?'”

    My hotel in Bangkok was a couple blocks away from the MahaNakhon skyscraper.

  4. @DrDaveT: Sky is everything!

    @Mu Yixiao: Cool building.

    Back in the 70s there was a brief fad of building half levels, often offset from the other levels (I’m sure this is a terrible explanation). The house I grew up in was like this. The master bedroom was off the stair landing, four steps below the second story.

    For a pic titled “Stacked”, that was pretty phallic.
