Thanks for following my request to open an independent thread for this, I think this tower deserves it Quite an interesting project. It's rather hard to still create modern landmarks for a metropolis nowadays, but this could become one for Beijing. In a nice and respectful way, it accompanies the Bird's Nest stadium and adds a graceful height to the surrounding area.

It's nice to see the Olympic park has become a place of recreation for people of Beijing

I must admit I wasn't exactly the biggest fan of the design in the beginning, but this one is really turning out nicely.

I can't wait to see what it looks like with full cladding.

Sorry for bumping an old thread without new information, but I kinda feel like people have forgotten about this structure.

It's really easy, just go to the main metro station of the olympic park and then walk the opposite way of all the rest of the people. Well basically you can't really miss this building. It's also next to a nice park where you can sit on a bench and stare at it for a while, as I did last year.
