Unfortunately, there can be architectural anomalies between floors or even between rooms that can interfere with Wi-Fi signals, resulting in spotty, or even dead, signals. So what do you do?

"Pop-Up Cities: China Builds a Bright Green Metropolis"

"Anywhere else in the world, it would have been a thought exercise, done up pretty for a design book or a museum show...These new megacities could evolve into sprawling, polluting megaslums. Or they could define a new species of world city. Unlike New York or London, they are blank slates - less affluent, perhaps, but also free from legacy designs and technologies tailored to the world of the 19th and 20th centuries."

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.
