From the New York website: The United States is eating China’s dust when it comes to speed of construction. Broad Sustainable Building, a modular construction company, has achieved the incredible feat of building a 57-story skyscraper in just 19 days.

The architect, Xian Min Zhang, said that the building, located in Changsha, China has 800 apartments, office space to accommodate 4,000 workers and 19 ten-meter high atriums, Curbed reported.

The building is reportedly energy efficient, as it uses quadruple-paned glass that should reduce CO2 emissions by 12,000 tons. The astonishing speed is due to the modular blocks used and allows the developers to add up to three stories per day.  [Curbed] — Tess Hofmann
