Tourists panic as glass skywalk shatters beneath them


Tourists got the scare of a lifetime Monday while visiting the Yuntai Mountain Geological Park in Central China's province of Henan.

While walking across the park's popular glass skywalk suspended over 3,000 feet in the air, a section of the platform cracked. The panic settled in, causing a mini stampeded towards the end of the path, according to reports.

New sky pool will let swimmers float 10 storeys above ground

Saturday, August 29, 2015, 3:07 PM - One of England’s latest architectural prospects takes ‘fear of heights’ to a whole new level.
As part of a residential development along the river Thames, London’s “sky pool” will be 25 m long and 3 m deep, suspended between two apartment blocks, 10 storeys above the ground.

Current plans call for the pool's surrounding walls to measure 20 cm in thickness -- comparable to that of the CN Tower’s glass floor, which is 6.35 cm thick, CBC reports.

18 of the most bizarre buildings around the world

http://www.msn.com/en-ca/travel/article/18-of-the-most-bizarre-buildings-around-the-world/ss-BBoxdEY?ocid=mailsignoutmd#image=1

Architecture has come a long way in the last few centuries.

Buildings have gone from using lava as clay for walls to having the ability to electronically rotate to change up the view from the windows.

While architectural possibilities have grown to a whole new level, buildings are becoming more and more advanced — and more wacky.

Ahead, 18 odd buildings that will definitely cause some heads to turn.

Pictured: This ice hotel in Quebec, Canada, is the perfect winter experience. With 500 tons of ice and 15,000 tons of snow, Hôtel de Glace is made every winter over a period of five weeks so that tourists can come and enjoy a cold stay

Mile-high skyscraper set to be world's tallest and twice as tall as the Burj Khalifa

Plans for a mile high skyscraper in Tokyo could be twice as tall as the current tallest building in the world, Dubai's Burj Khalifa.

This super-tall building is set to reach a height of 5,577ft and host up to 55,000 people in Tokyo bay, an inlet southeast of the Japanese capital.

If the plans are accepted - the 'Sky Mile Tower' would be surrounded by a series of man-made hexagonal islands, Architectural Digest reports.

These islands are designed to protect Tokyo from flooding and act as foundation for homes for nearly half a million people.

The skyscraper is set to be completed by 2045.

The tower and satellite islands, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and engineering firm Leslie E. Robertson, are planned to be partially powered by it transit system.

Additionally - wind farms, solar panels and algae farms on the islands are planned to provide electricity.

The tower's facade is designed to collect filter and store water preventing the need to pump water to the top floors.

According to Architectural Digest, the tower will have "multilevel sky lobbies where residents would share amenities such as shopping centers, restaurants, hotels, gyms, libraries, and health clinics."
