Amazing Building with 1000 WindowsAmazing Building with 1000 Windows
A new office block being built in China is believed to have the most windows of any building of its size in the world.
The nine-storey building, designed by Japanese architect Sako Keiichiro, has close to a 1,000 windows, reports Today Morning.
People walking past the new development in Jinhua say it makes them feel dizzy if they look at the building for too long because it's so unusual.
One local newspaper journalist counted 113 windows in the 15 rooms of the 9th floor, and said one room alone had 21 windows.
None of the rooms in the building are completely square or rectangular, corridors wind around and between rooms, and each floor features a mini garden.
"It's like a maze inside," said one construction worker, who added that it was the most difficult and time-consuming project he had ever worked on.
Head of construction, Mr Wei, said it would be completed this summer. A three-storey hotel of similar design would also be built.
He revealed the total construction fee for the office building would be around £6 million: "The windows alone cost nearly £500,000," he added.
