Check it out an almost complete Shanghai 13 Story Building fell over, just fell over, IT FELL OVER!





You can read about it here: http://www.chinahush.com/2009/06/28/shanghai-13-story-building-collapse/
but apparently they built 13 stories on grade, with no basement, and tied it all down to hollow pilings with no rebar. Then dug a hole next to the building for a parking garage, piled the dirt on the opposite side of the building then the heavy rains came and when the hollow pilings failed over it went.
