I don't know if you get the Discovery channel where you live but they had a program called China's Man-Made Marvels. They had a segment on the construction of the CCTV HQ. You might want to check it out if you can find it. I believe you might be able to buy it on DVD through the Discovery channel website.

I notice that they are using quite a bit of steel beam. I guess this is necessary since this is such an intricate structure. I think it will be very interesting to see if the two sides can match up, it will not be very easy.

Some new pictures...

Here are some pictures I took during a study tour to Beijing and Shanghai. I visited the building site with 27 fellow students and 4 teachers on april 6th.

The first two pictures are stitched together, so the building looks a bit more bent than it is in reality...

The last picture shows the way in which some builders spend their leisure time.

One of the most wonderful skyscrapers being built right now and definitely my absolute favorite.
Congrats.

Yes, indeed, very early for glass in my opinion. Glad to see it going on however.

why did they leave a gap between the two towers?

About the gap in the building: they're going to close that when the two towers are connected at the top. The building is very complex with all the angles and they're not sure yet how the building will 'settle' itself. The building is erected in a slightly more upright angle than its final position due to its enormous weight. When everything is connected on top, the building is fixed at groundlevel.

As you can see on this last picture they are pouring concrete around the steel collumns of the construction. In this way, the collumns can take higher pressures. The entire construction works as a hull to create stability. The forces on the construction are not the same everywhere, so in some places the stability beams are closer together (there are more crosses in some places, view the renderings too).

This'll probably turn out to be one of the most impressive feats of engineering anywhere! It really is quite amazing. I wonder how many engineering and architecture text books this building will end up in. Maybe this building will become the inspiration for a whole generation of Chinese architects and engineers.

WOW now i know where all the world steel production is going. this one is truly a feat of engineering, and i'll bet there is at least 300.000 tons of fabricated steel in it. I can't wait to see the cantalever sections begin. also notice how the crossbracing near the the base is more intense at certain points for much higher load transfer, and the cantalever sections have long diagonal bracing as if they are "tied back" to the "masts". I'm guessing that they will just build it outward without any type of "backstay" system employed.
