The next section will be "hypertall".

Damn Chinese Tower; The majority of skyscrapers are concentrated at this fast-growing country.

Indeed the core is gigantic. But there's enough floor space available, it deceives from this perpective. Take a look at post 1499 / 1500

Are those balconies on the yellow residential tower to the right? or is it just under construction? Nice views if they are.

Well Shenzhen has only one supertall designed by AS+GG - Heung Kong Tower - and its cladding is of the same quality as this one

What does the buildings designers have to do with the cladding? I know a few buildings that in the renders the cladding looked different than the actual window cladding on the finished building. From a design standpoint alone though AS+GG makes some very nice designs I'd love to work for them.
