China new constructions Changsha XinKaiPu

Some of the new constructions you can see everywhere here in Changsha. 

Unfortunately These buildings get old after just a few years, no one really takes care of the building: renovations aspects. The elevators don't work well. The staircase is often a dirty. Buildings can be really messy as inhabitants throw their garbages everywhere and no one cares. 
This is very interesting: in China people want something new. And things are not meant to last... When a building gets older: you simply build a new one! I believe that is not only explained by the consumption society but that there is an origin in thousands years old Chinese culture!

At the beginning of the video XinkaiPu police station.
In the background you can hear the machine digging up the subway.
