How about the 3-Gorges dam ?

China builds fast and cheap and there's a minimum of
legit engineering and inspection. Somewhat like Russia
in the 50s/60s, China prefers appearances over all

press to take pictures, make praiseful documentaries,
and then when it all falls down they won't tell anybody.
