    Interestingly enough the construction that was initially supposed to end in March of 2009 continues until now, with “some cosmetic changes to be finished soon”. As of right now the stadium is astonishing 518% late and 548% over budget.

    Astana je grad sam po sebi čudo, koji je izgrađen vizijom jednog čovjeka i uz pomoć najpoznatijih svjetskih arhitekata. Nigdje nema toliko čudnih struktura na jednom mjestu. Sajamski grad će samo upotpuniti sliku Astane po tom pitanju.

    Music-lovers of Huainan, China, can revel in this ''Piano House'' designed by architecture students from the Hefei University of Technology. The focal transparent violin contains the escalators and the staircase for the main piano-shaped building. Because of its unique shape it has become a popular tourist place and many newly weds have their photo taken in its front. The locals have dubbed it “the most romantic building in China. http://unusualplaces.org/piano-house/ Anđela Bogdan

    Australian experts found a way to incorporate cigarette butt waste into brick making that not only gets that waste out of the environment, but it also makes cheaper and less energy-intensive bricks. When cigarette butts are added to clay bricks, the energy needed to fire them was cut by up to 58 percent. The bricks were lighter and were better insulators, too, meaning they could help cut household cooling and heating demands, all while keeping the same strong properties of traditional bricks.

    Can't say I've heard of this brick additive concept before. Sounds a great idea, Andela, although It probably needs one of the main brick companies to get on board, along with a means of readily gathering discarded butts, before it'll get wings.

    I remember passing by the CCTV building, Bryan, when visiting China, and thinking of the obvious design and construction problems it must have propagated. I am thankful that my roots are below ground, where only the size and direction of the loads to be resisted vary, and that I am not involved in the ongoing 'opportunities' that architects provide for structural engineers in such instances. 😀 Thanks for the tag, @Gert Scholtz

    The Hyperloop One is ultra speed train made for 28 passengers, It ''floats'' on air pillow by using the magnetic accelerator. The transportation system is powered by solar panel. Preliminary analysis indicated that such a route might obtain an expected journey time of 35 minutes, meaning that passengers would traverse the 350-mile (560 km) route at an average speed of around 600 mph (970 km/h), with a top speed of 760 mph (1,200 km/h). In other words, Hyperloop train will travel from Dubai to Abu Dhabi in 12 minutes. Very impressive technology, isn't it?

    The nuclear reactor is the heart of the station. In its central part, the reactor core's heat is generated by controlled nuclear fission. With this heat, a coolant is heated as it is pumped through the reactor and thereby removes the energy from the reactor. Heat from nuclear fission is used to raise steam, which runs through turbines, which in turn powers the electrical generators. Mukesh Mistry
