An Aerial View Of The 90-Meter-Long Puffer Fish Tower In East China

Glittering in the sunlight, the giant golden puffer fish tower has become a local landmark in Zhenjiang, east China’s Jiangsu Province. This giant tower was built to enhance awareness and protect the ecological resources in the Yangtze River Basin.

Designed by the Architectural Design and Research Institute of Tongji University, the floating puffer fish is reportedly the world’s largest, measuring 90 meters long, 40 meters wide and 62 meters tall, and weighing around 2,100 tons. The golden and glittering coat of the puffer fish is spliced with more than 7,000 pieces of brass metal of varying shapes.

According to a local report, the puffer fish tower is being submitted for entry to the Guinness World Records due to its giant size.
