The Shanghai Tower Goes Up In Under Three Minutes?

It does when it's another time-lapse video!

An engineering marvel and an architectural beauty, the Shanghai tower is something to behold. At 2,073 ft. it is the world's second tallest building. And because it's located at the top of a river basin, it required 980 foundation piles that stretched 282 feet deep apiece.

And why is it spiraled you might be asking, well that's because of the threat of typhoons. So the counter-measure is that it twists about 1 degree per story of the building. Like I said, an engineering marvel.
