From SOM via tumblr (June 2016). The towers will have exoskeleton facades!
The brace geometry of each frame responds to the structural loads on tall buildings—severe winds at the top and pressure at the bottom—by aligning braces at different angles along the tower’s height.

Look easy but with great thoughts and efforts behind. Masterstroke!

For comparison, here's an exoskeleton that is as difficult to build as it looks.

Fresh from the architect/engineer on instagram today, "a structural concept that was invented and patented by SOM: ductile steel links contained within the frames yield during extraordinary seismic conditions. This careful marriage of stiffness and flexibility makes for an ideal structural system to handle extreme winds and seismic activity."

Don't miss the animation.

So this is now the 3rd iteration of that design, and it's actually starting to look decent. I still prefer the very old box proposal though.

I think so. Forumers please correct me if I'm wrong.

Model of the taller tower was in the recent Sky's the Limit exhibit. The exo diagrid is a stretched Mitchell truss, which was in SOM's (unbuilt) proposals of San Fran Transbay Tower, Shanghai Tower, and i Wuhan Chow Tai Fook. Now Shenzhen will have this superb design. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...28&postcount=7

Just a heads up, CITIC Securities is giving up on that exoskeleton design altogether. They are settling with a plain simple glass box like that of SY Upperhills. The ceiling of the highest floor is around 280m, so whether the new design will make it to a supertall or not will depend on how big they want to make the crown...

Thanks for the head up, Scion. Let's hope the design will get built somewhere else as a megatall.

From SOM Structural Engineering (p. 57)

I'm sure this will look very cool when completed.
