The Chinese are super fast you know. There's a helluva lot of them and they usually work 25/8. I'm convinced CWTC and also CCTV will be completed in time for the Olympics.

26f and still no zig-zag stuff in the structure. Are you sure they didn't pick the straight version?

I thought they decided not to go with the zigzag SOM design long ago. Isnt it just mostly straight that slowly gets smaller towards the top?

I think I have renders/models of 4-5 versions. The construction pics fit with this render the best


However, that version looks to be just around 70f, so I guess it's the 308m version?

The 308 m. version looks a lot better; it reminds me of ICC in HK.
