Welcome back, Richest fans! Beijing in China currently houses one of the most unusual structures around, the China Central Television Headquarters. Instead of being a typical skyscraper, it’s designed in a very eye-catching way. It’s all part of China’s drive to modernise their buildings. As a result, the CCTV tower is one of the most expensive buildings in the world. Yet for many years, it was empty due to a big incident during the Chinese New Year. Today, we’re going to delve into the history, features, and costs of this unusual building. On top of that, we’ll see other incredible structures created by the same design team across the globe.
