Yeah, this is one of the few, if not the only tower which looks good without its cladding. But then again, the cladding is equally as impressive, so its a win/win situation here

spectaculor view .Actually Guangzhou and Shenzen together should become the software capitals of China .Already Shenzen has many software start ups .They should replicate the sillicon valley bay area mountain view pheonomenon of U.S .They even have a relatively warmer climate when compared to beijing shanghai or tianjin.

I love the cross-hatching. Like Hancock in Chicago.

difference is that these diagonal running tubes in west tower are inside cladding whereas hancock's diagonal steel are outside.

I know ho much I'd miss blue cladding if this tower was decided to be cladded in green, yuuk.

yeah i think they need some sort of a traditional chiense garden like in shuzhou and other places built aroudn the city that would finish up things perfectly .That is one thing missing in all these guangzhou pictures which are brilliant no ethnic chinese buildings and gardens

There are lots of Chinese gardens in Guangzhou, e.g., the following 宝墨园 in PanYu district, it is on par with Suzhou

Anyway ,i am really surprised seeing all these pictures about guangzhou .Because according to some shit magazine i read (you can searh top 10 dirtiest cities on earth) guangzhou was ranked as one of the worst places in the world it was in the top 20 list and also .It was ranked as one of the most unhygenic places for westerners to go to .I think this rating was by forbes or TIME .Though to be hoenst i am very surprised to find such a clean green super ass kicking guangzhou .Though i know western media always lies about china .but i expected them to be honest when they are making such lists

In general, Chinese cities are much dirtier than westerns. That's really what they should improve on.
