A Chinese worker hangs a road sign on a telegraph pole in front of the under-construction Wang Jing SOHO complex by renowned architect Zaha Hadid in Beijing on January 3, 2013. Already famed for fake designer bags and pirated DVDs, imitation in China may have reached new heights with a set of towers that strongly resemble ones designed by renowned architect Zaha Hadid. It could rank among the more flagrant ripoffs in a country already notorious for imitating foreign products without permission -- but the developer of the Chongqing project, Meiquan 22nd Century, has denied any copying.
