But jokes aside, I quite like this design and the only other sort of example of this rainbow type of shape that I can think of is the Gate Way Arch in St. Louis which is indeed quite spectacular. I also think that this architectural feat is great for Beijing because a rainbow\s often represent coming good luck and fortune so I hope the best for Beijing

Zhongguo Zun really is beautiful. Sometimes I´m imagining it in skyline with 7 - 11 "30 St Mary Axe" Pity there´s no diagram for this fantastic building
