Ring of Life – China

Amazing ! The Huffington Post called it “stunning”, and National Geographic listed a photo of it amongst their “Best of September (2012)”. Meanwhile, England’s Daily Mail declared it “Orient Excess”. Its the “Ring of Life”, just another example of the China’s building craze. They claim it is pretty “landscape architecture”—like the Eiffel Tower. It uses four elevators to take people to the top !

The ring is made of an astounding 3,000 tons of steel and it will glow at night—decorated with 12,000 LED lights. According to Fushun Municipal Government’s officials, this titanic structure does absolutely nothing except serve as an elevated sighting position. They claim it is pretty “landscape architecture”—like the Eiffel Tower. It uses four elevators to take people to the top.

What is the actual function of the building? Some say it’s merely a tourist attraction meant to compete with the Gateway Arch in the United States, others claim it’s a death star being disguised as a mundane building ! Japanese site China Explosion reports that there were even initial plans to allow bungee jumping off the ring, but those were shelved over safety concerns.
