Guangzhou Circle, the city's newest landmark, has been listed by CNN as one of 2014's ten eye-popping new buildings. Three other new Chinese buildings also made the cut: The Shanghai Tower, the to-be-built Sky City in Changsha, and the Culture Center of Harbin.



The recently completed building, designed by the Italian architecture firm AM Progetti, has been dubbed "doughnut" or "Chinese jade" by enthusiastic local residents. According to CNN, "The inner hole is unique in building design, and has a diameter of almost 50 meters. The architects say that they wanted to create a landmark building which would defy the western skyscraper stereotype, and were inspired by jade discs and numerological tradition of feng shui."
