Landmark building should respect the public's feeling

There is an upright iron hoop called "Ring of Life" in Shenfu New Town, Fushun city, Liaoniang province. Costing over 100 million yuan, the huge ring is 157 meters in diameter and 50-storey in height. Decorated by 12,000 LED lights, the landmark building uses 3,000 tons of steels and is known as unique in the world. It is said that the huge structure is only a landscape building.

If seeing the “Ring of Life,” Zelanian director Peter Jackson may be regretful that he missed a wonderful landscape landmark for his movie “The Lord of the Rings,” and the tiger, a character in “Madagascar 3,” will say that it is a piece of cake to run across it. However, people obviously do not understand the care and thought of local government. When its pictures were uploaded on the Internet, they immediately led to a series of spoofs, such as “cosmic portal” and “entrance for aliens to invade the Earth,” and also triggered the PS upsurge in the Internet.

Steve Jobs said, “People do not know what they want until you give it to them.” The famous Eiffel Tower had incurred numerous criticisms from design to completion, but now it is in the ranks of famous buildings in the world. It needs time to prove the beauty of architecture, like wine. It is suspected of seeking quick success and instant benefits if blindly refusing the new buildings.
