All of these twin tower projects in Guiyang! This city is going to have the most supertall twins in the world!

I would honestly be surprised if they kept the current design. It's almost never practical to build that audacious, although it would be nice.

Yeah, also considering this is guiyang. An A-Tier city might consider a crazy tower, but guiyang seems unlikely. Thinking about what one of the leaders from Eton said, for china B-Tier cities, they build very easy boxy designs for landmark towers, because the construction cost in B cities is the same as in A, only the cost for the ground and the income in the end are both lower. To make the landmark towers then still stand out they make this "10%" twist to the design, to still make it unique. An outrageously complex structure as this does not really fit into this concept, while the other major towers of the city all do with their boxyness.

Although Guiyang has had some rather audacious designs before.
That one very near this project- the 201 Tower, I believe, is pretty different. I also remember an ~1700ft. design for an IFC in Guiyang with a very wild design.
But regardless, I would still be surprised if a design like that materialized anywhere. It's architectural candy, which rarely, if ever, outweighs economic value.

I'm sorry, but IMO, it is not awesome, it is boring and pathetic. Compared to what it could have been, it went from something really interesting to just the next supertall to be built.
I am wondering about how all these new supertalls that in being built in China are going to age, in terms of design. Certainly not all, but the greater percentage of them are boring, plain, monochromatic glass edifices with no personality or character. How will they be viewed in 50 or 75 years?

In 50 or 75 years, I hope they are just fillers but it leaves the question of how long china's cities will grow upwards.

I rather have this boxy twin supertall get built then waiting for the amazing design and never seeing it completed.
