Today's Archi-Meme from Above

The architecture news spreading like crazy around the Internet today concerns a rooftop structure in Beijing that local officials have demanded be tore down. Here is the story at South China Morning Post. Professor Zhang Biqing spent six years building what's referred to in the article as a "rooftop garden villa," with fake rocks and real vegetation above his penthouse apartment. His concerned neighbors are now getting their way, as he has 15 day to demolish the illegal structure.

None of the coverage I came across located the building in question. After some sleuthing and aerial browsing, I think I found it. Click the image above to see the building and its surroundings at Bing Maps (here is the link to Google Maps).
