The building takes shape
“If a building looks better under construction than it does when finished, then it's a failure.
—Doug Coupland

Once the foundation is built, the work goes quickly.

The staircases, windows and the outside brink veneer have been installed.
The little white pads outside the windows are for the installation of air conditioners.

The bamboo scaffolding surrounding the building is covered with green protective coverings to prevent debris from falling onto pedestrians.

The pink coloured condominium is the "Volksgarden" a fairly new condominium community. It got its name from the nearby FAW factories that assemble Volkswagen automobiles.
