The cranes look to be idle in that last pic. I wonder if it is a holiday?

The design is beautiful indeed, though impractical.

This file is called "Wuhan Hongshan Square pigeons" on Wikimedia commons:



And this one is from http://djtravel.homestead.com/citylife.html:

Those are pigeons? Over here they're not white they're like a dirty gray color and black they look like rats with wings. This building is looking better and better each passing week

The curved glass really accentuate the tripod's round corners. Immaculate integration of tower form and facade design. Can't wait to see it tapers.

Thanx for the updates oscillation. Always good to see picture updates from you. Looks like the core rose a couple floors and the cladding as well. The curvature is pretty sweet.

KillerZavatar,
you are certainly correct about the previous picture being an "artist" impression, not a reality.
I know a thing or two about computers and computer graphics, but this good-intentional "fake" is not much of a challenge.

All one needs to do is to look at the shadows which should all point in the same direction, .... but they do not. The "artist" made a mistake in volunteering the shadows, trying to make his fantasy more realistic.
This is a common mistake in computer graphics done 'in a hurry" and when the objects and figures are crafted individually, scaled and than pasted on the common background.
Shadows are difficult to match.

By the way, after many years, this is the first time I am responding to any of your comments.
This gives me anopportunity to thank you for your numerous expert contributions which we (skyscraper enthusiasts) enjoyed over the years.
Not just on skyscrapercity.com but also on the skyscraperpage.com.
