Another chinese big one. I bet it would resist very well any earthquake. I liked the "wind proof" design with all those tunnels through the building. Excellent project.

Funny name for a project in China.
You don't associate Greenland with Wuhan.

And how is "complicated" measured?

Though I agree with you, it is beautiful to look at.

Maybe the core gets smaller relative to the floorplates in higher floors? At the lower levels we can see, there seems to be so little space between the core and the exterior walls!

Look at the first post of this thread. There's a pic which shows exactly what you want to know .
The core gets smaller step by step.
