I know what you mean, the steelwork is quite hefty, however on completion this will be the second biggest office building in the world behind only the pentagon, so i think they'll be ok!

No, it's not hard to understand. The center of gravity is clearly somewhere in the suspended part. Thanks for the remark, I hadn't noticed.

the CCTV was designed by the team wich, Rem Koolhaas e Ole Scheeren, of course, the german is responsible for all of OMA's business with Asia.............In the year of the project they had to choose or GRound zero contest or CCTV contest, and they chose CCTV, clearly that the concept of the building was deconstruction of the WTC,
But on the board of jurors of a tender Historian, that i forget the name, a friend of Rem Koolhaas, drop the word and said that all triumph , an arch of triumph,
by yhe way
The project then it is the two of the OMAAMO

One day I will work with them the dutch, the german and the brazillian

Again, speed-monsters. It would not surprise me if, beside being externally complete, the building was partly usable in time for the Olympics.

One of the buildings I want to see in person but most likely will not be able to. Unless I go to Beijing for the Olympics!

Wait 5 or 7 years, and Beijing will have an impressive skyline. I didn't interested me very much apart from some temples, gardens and landmarks. But now it's starting to look so modern and interesting (apart from Olympics). Now this is urban developing!
