Where rather stunning photos show a piece of starchitecture engulfed in flames. A soon-to-open hotel and cultural center designed by Rem Koolhaas looks pretty devastated by the fire, coming on the heels of lunar new year celebrations (read: fireworks). It's "likely" workers who were readying the building were inside when the fire started, but no reports of deaths or injuries so far. [NYT]
