Got an interesting angle yesterday

I was able to make a stitch of 98 images (10MP camera), which added up to about 160MP, now slightly less because of cropping... in any case, here it is:



Enjoy.

Hi ZZ-II, it's a bit too big to post online- hope this res gets close enough! If you'd like me to crop out a specific detail, just let me know!

Massive overhang element added today

I nearly passed by the towers without noticing, but a massive horizontal element of the overhang has been added today, and very very rapidly, I might add! Here are a few perspectives:

Not very lonely at the top:

A slightly better angle:

Apologies for today's crap visibility...

This is absolutely one of the greatest buildings U/C right now. I'm very exciting to see it completed.

Are there any existing building today that has similar design like this one? I'm just wondering because I am totally interested on how will they connect the two massive structures together.

when the left leg is completed
the bridge between them will be started
in fact the first leg should be 40m taller than the right or so
