15-Story Hotel Built by Chinese Workers in 6 Days

Here is an awesome video of a hotel constructed in six days. Called the Ark Hotel, most materials were prefabricated off-site and assembled on-site. Despite its quick construction time, the structure is designed to withstand a magnitude 9 earthquake. Nearby residents who have been gone for a week would probably be the most surprised. Somehow in the end knowing a hotel was built in six days does not make the hotel any more attractive for a stay.
