It took workers just 46 hours using prefabricated columns and modules to finish the main structure of the Ark Hotel, then an additional 90 hours to complete its enclosure.
Does that make you think it would fall down the next time disaster strikes? The sustainable building is also said to be earthquake-resistant, not to mention sound-proofed and thermal-insulated.
That doesn't mean we're likely to see hotels popping up in less than a week in America any time soon. Hotel Chatter adds that workers at China's Ark Hotel didn't stop until 10 p.m., which simply isn't plausible in many countries.
