Not broken apart, just as Skullcrusher said, pick it up and use it.

Hey Jo da plumbr, have you seen what the Canadians see?

Yeah we saw this in a couple of our structural engineering (carpenter version) classes. It actually wasn't caused entirely by an engineering mistake. It was also due to p!ss poor planning and building location.

Notice in picture 4 the huge pile of dirt that is in the front of the shot. That was actually the result of an ongoing excavation for an underground parking garage. Yes, believe it or not the parking garage was being constructed after the majority of the building was completed.

The removal and placement of the 100's of tons of dirt in conjunction with the high moisture content (note the wet conditions) resulted in the building beginning to sink. It never really just "fell over" that's why it doesn't appear to be in bad shape.

If you look at picture 2 I believe it displays a river in close proximity in the background. (poor soil)

Also look at the piers at the base of the building they appear to be hollow. This is hard to explain as it is not unheard of, but very odd for a building of this size.

Gotta love it though.

I read an engineering report on this some months back. If I recall correctly, what happened was that a contractor started a deep excavation right next to the completed building and the soil pressure under the building (from the building's weight) caused a shift of the soil beneath the building towards the excavation, which then caused the building's piling foundations to shear and the building fell over in that direction.

Kind of reminds me of an episode of Earl when Earl and Randy accidentally overturned Joy's trailer and Joy and Darnell lived in it while it was on it side. That was some funny $hit.

We shouldn't laugh too hard, it looks like the Chinese don't want to have "Big Government" that has regulations for building (or food additives or lead paint on toys and in toothpaste). It is easy to take a picture of one building that fell over; how do you take a picture of what unregulated wall street bankers did to our economy and my job?
