The New China Central TV Buildings

This is a picture of the new China Central TV buildings - one of which was destroyed in a fire at the end of the Chinese New years in February. As the story goes, someone at CCTV authorized a spectacular fireworks show that did not have a permit from the local police. One of the rockets hit the building and destroyed it and it must now be replaced. The problem is that it sits on a foundation shared by the other building and replacing it may cause structural damage and possible collapse of the unharmed building. The director of CCTV was fired this weekend because of this.
