Some pics from my recent trip to China. The pollution was bad for the 2.5 hours I spent in Wuhan...

So in these most recent pics it looks like the floor they are wrapping steel around is skinnier than the floors below it or is that an optical illusion anybody know?

Yes the floor plates have been getting slightly smaller as they rise from about half way up I think

I like that building, except the unrealistic renderings. Usually they don't show the chinese cities smog reality



The rendering on the right is much more realistic.

I wonder if those air passageways at the 3 different levels will be accessible from inside the building? I imagine the winds could be very strong through them - so maybe they would be too dangerous for people to walk on...

Not only will this be the world's second tallest building, but without Burj Khalifa, this thread would now have ten times the views and replies with people drooling all over every page because it would be a world record breaker under construction.

Reminds me of a quote from Star Trek: Enterprise:

"Do you know what Buzz Aldrin said when he stepped on the moon?"
"No."
"Nobody does. Because Armstrong went first."

That last piece of cladding in the last picture is a work of art itself, like every other that was already installed in its place. Amazing care for details.

China has big plans for transforming over to renewable energy. So perhaps the fog won't be so bad in the future.
