Shenzhen 90s Skyscrapers... The first #supertall#skyscraper in China was Shun Hing Square #shunhingsquare (#architecture American Design Associates, KY Cheung, 384m tall, 1996) on the left, and Shenzhen Development Bank Building (Peddle Thorp & Walker, 183m, 1996) is on the right, in front of the old blue glazed Stock Exchange tower. When built, this stretch of #shennaneastroad in Luo Hu #luohu was the financial heart in the #cbd oengf the city, but it's since moved west to Futian. Even on a dull day, the view from Grand Theatre Plaza is still thrilling, a vision of when urban #china first felt like a #futuristic Tomorrowland
Got a nice #nypost half page photo placement of 7 ft 3” NY Knicks basketball star Kristaps Porzingis @kporzee posing with former NY Knicks great Walt Frazier @waltfrazier who looks average in height at 6’ 4” @godslovenyc Golden Heart Awards the other night. Definitely the tallest guy I ever photographed. #nyknicks#basketballlegends#supertall photo by 📸 @gnpace
The #kitschy Windsor Hotel in Barranquilla (yesterday’s post), with its stubby little #BigBen turret, recalls the extruded extreme: the Al-Yaqoub Tower on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai, the 1,000+ foot #skyscraper that Disneyfies the elements of the Palace of Westminster‘s Elizabeth Tower in yellow concrete bits, centered on a blank panel: the design did not actually bother to feature a real clockface, so precisely not Big Ben although millions look up and exclaim, ‘ah, look! Big Ben!’ Somehow the very unlike towers beside it together make a pleasant composition, perhaps largely because they’re easy to view from the low-lying DIFC or the 12-lane #SZR .

➡️Swipe to see this monster of a cake in progress! 🔸 This cake is the new record holder for weight and height! .
🔸 The bottom tier was a double barrel 14” round. Then a 12”-10”-8” round tiers. Standing at a very close 3 ft tall!! .
🔸 I don’t even know how much this weighed as it took 2 people to lift it in and out of a fridge, and then to put it on this table. 😅 .
🔸 With every cake I do I find out my new limit. 😂
