A 15-story hotel in Shanghai, China was built in six days, according to ArchDaily. What's even more impressive is that this building is apparently "Level 9 Earthquake Resistant."

Watch the impressive time-lapse video of the construction here:

It's a very simple rectangular building. I have to say that it is still a pretty impressive feat.

I'm an architect and reading this news what impress me is not how fast they built the structure even if it's pretty impressive, but how in the hell they completed all the systems (electric, plumbing heating ecc.) in such a short time. Amazing

I think it'd be better to say it was 'erected' in 6 days since it was all off-site pre-fab and the foundation was already there.

What kind of projects are you currently working on? Housing or commercial?
