China's obsession with vertical cities 30.10.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
By the end of next year one-in-three of the worlds 100m+ skyscrapers will be in China, as its state-orchestrated urbanisation drive prompts a megacity building bonanza In late September, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat , a non-profit organisation that keeps the worlds largest database on skyscrapers, held its annual conference in Shanghai two years after its last meeting there.

As the global population rises and cities become more crowded, the fabric of urban centres is changing.

Right now, theyre at 46th place in the freakiness rankings, sandwiched between abandoned rocking chairs and wind-up music boxes (well below the likes of staring twins and evil clowns). But if there was a moment when the placid little critters first extended their range beyond merely cute, I like to think I was there, and wailing in raw, unfiltered, primal terror. That reaction was probably wasnt what Richard Adams had in mind when he wrote Watership Down in 1972, his homily to the timeless rhythms of rural England. I doubt Martin Rosen and John Hubley, directors of the 1978 film version, wanted to scare the bejesus out of their young audience ...
