Building in China Has a Road on Its Roof

This five-storey building in Chongqing, China has a terraced roof that doubles as a single-lane public road. Chongqing's terrain is made up of hill slopes, and the lack of flat building space has forced architects and urban planners to think outside the box in order to come up with feasible solutions.

This building is actually the indoor parking of an apartment complex higher up the side of the hill. Without the road, residents would have to take an elevator or walk up from street level, at the base of the hill all the way up to the apartment building.
