How old is the metallic installation (sculpture) in these 2 pics?

Is it supposed to be a model on site? What is it?

Muse you're right,the metallic installation is a model on site, i think you can feel the structure is too complex , yes, and by reason of this , the tower will finish in 2009.

I have been working on this project a little in the Beijing office of ARUP.

The small model in the carpark is actually a 7m tall perfect scale model used on a shaker table to simulate earthquake loads.

The ARUP office is across the road from the site, so I will take some photos before I leave here to show. When there is a clear day!

Thanks ccoo . Does the installation represent the superstructure of the building? The bracings are easily seen though. Also, how long ago did you produce it ccoo?

Interesting, but not realistic. The tower would be almost impossible to construct if the steel beams are positioned as shown on that maquette. In fact, it would be impossible to keep each of the two weight bearing towers in balance during construction as they would tend to tilt towards, and collapse on their acute angle sides (unless it was decided to construct temporary reinforced supports, which are very expensive). As such, it is to be expected for some of the key weight-bearing beams, on each of the two towers, to be perpendicular to the ground and continuous from ground to roof.

Why don't they use the zap gun to enlarge this sculpture in few seconds?

Well, yeah. thanks. I guessed it wasn't really representative to the nth. Too much going on on the inside for it to be accurate for a start. I just found it to be a curiousity piece more than anything else.

I would be keen to see a diagram of this one's superstructure though. It's possibly more simple than one would imagine it to be lol. The closest we've seen so far are the construction schedule diagrams posted by Qazaq on page 2.

a movie from march 2006, great shots from this and 3 other Beijing construction sites.

source: YouTube - Danwei TV: Big Buildings of Beijing

A short video about showing the current state of four of Beijing's new mega buildings:

- Rem Koolhaas' new CCTV building
- Paul Andreu's National Theater
- The National Swimming Center or 'Water Cube' designed by PTW
- The Olympic Stadium designed Herzog & de Meuron
Shot and edited by Luke Mines, presented by Jeremy Goldkorn.
