Gigantic population of Chongquing is very much due to the enormous size of the municipality. As a city proper concerned Chongqing is smaller the Guangzhou, although is a very big city in it's own right...

the inventive video indeed, its brilliant with brilliant tune as well.

I never seen the roof of the tower from above like that, looks as though they could setup a swimming pool on the top of the atrium, that should be cool. I also noticed how citic plaza, twin towers and the TV&sightseeing tower are in kite shape (0:50 secs in the vid). The citic plaza at the far bottom. twins in the middle and TV tower at the top. The west and east tower has got to be identical towers, otherwise it will break the perfect kite formation and twins looks just spectacular. (1:15 secs show amazing twins in the drive through)

Yes, and no... Also you have West Tower and Tv Tower similar, and East Tower and Citic Plaza similar...

I meant if you pause somewhere around 0:50sec in the vid you'll see 4 buildings in KITE formation.

Actually, atriums like that are fairly common, even in tall buildings. There is one architect whose name eludes me right now who designed a series of hotels with similar elements - large atrium in the middle that all the floors look out onto, visible elevators that go up and down in the atrium, etc. There's one in Atlanta and another in New York. He also designed the Tomorrow Square tower in Shanghai if I'm not mistaken.

So, I wouldn't call this a copy of the Jin Mao tower unless this atrium is also a Grand Hyatt.

He meant the form is like a kite but west and east towers are not exactly identical.
