Wow, it must have taken you a long time to find those pictures! All the other pics I've seen of this tower have been small crappy ones, but these ones are great!

This is a nice tower. Usually I don't like the look of revolving restaurants on top of skyscrapers (because they are not integrated into the design well... they usually look like last minute afterthoughts), but in this case it looks more like a crown than anything else. The night lighting scheme is excellent, and the tower itself is very nice. I like the mix of rounded and sharp angles. 8.5/10

Not really..but thanks!!

It looks awkward and I dont like the boxy angles. The night lighting does help to soften it some though.

It looks like a UFO landed on top....which for some strange reason, actually works on that tower. I really like it. 9

i've been inside this building many times.... it's pretty nice. at night it looks so pretty it's hard not to like it. it is the central focus of Nanjing for sure. inside it is a nightmare..... escalators only go up one floor, then you have to walk around tonnes of shops on top of each other to find where the next escalator is.

Eight.

Almost another case of 'too much going on' but the fairly modest facade-cladding and decent dimensioning/composition keep it on the right side of kitsch.

6.5/10
