Wow! look at the progress of this magnificent thing! This will be a nice scene on August once the Olympics started. I wonder how the interior looks like?

That is awesome with the projections!!! really made my day. So are the going to keep it with projectors or are LEDs going to be used? OMA's book "Content" gives the impression it is going to be LEDs

No I don't think it should ,Beijing has been criticized for being so westernized with their new towers that building looks abit like Chinesse architectural design , maybe that would help to ease the anguish among the chinesse perception of their Capital city

are the squares of cladding supposed to be distorted slightly towards the top of the building because for me it doesn't look quite right since the cladding design at the bottom of the tower is so neat.

HOLY SH*T! Those are the most incredible pictures I've seen of this site.

Every time I see this project or aerials of Dubai I think to myself, WELCOME TO THE FUTURE!

I'm really interested to see how the landscaping is going to be underneath this beast.

I love this image, it shows Beijing's beautiful historical low-rise brick buildings clashing against the symbol of China's future, the ultra modern CCTV headquarters. Going through the back alleys (sometimes called hutongs) of Beijing is wonderful and an experience in itself, they have so much character; sadly, this one will probably be soon demolished, but still many more will be preserved, almost all of them inside the 2nd ring road (this building is on the 3rd ring, in a modern zone)!

Pretty much: I love old China, but I don't have problems with new China either. Harmony is key.
