my question is. As the steel bend and warp into their final position. How do they keep the glass from shattering? This thing should take years to settle right?

I would imagine that the glass is just a facade attached with flexible joints to the structure, so even if the steel bends and warps the skin shouldn't really change that much.

Whats with the different line pattern near the top? I think this building would look so much better if all the lines were lined or connected together perfectly not bend near the top, it gives the illusion that they made a mistake while connecting the lines.

In the beginning I didn't like the shape. I prefer pencil looking scrapers more. But now its time to speak out a opinionchange. I really like this masterpiece. Very spectacular.

I like the progression of the forum! This is a very innovative skyscraper. Ive always though capital cities should exude elegance and strength and leave commerce to the second city(Shanghai, Hong Kong, Chongqing, Guangzhou) , but Beijing is doing an admirable job.
