I have to say those are some of the funkiest cladding elements I've seen. They have a very distinct bend at the end of every piece which gives quite a stunning impression.

This building is just stunning! This one should definetly be in the Top 10 ROT. China has really built some amazing skyscrapers over the last ten years, Jin Mao, SWFC, Guangzhou West Tower, and Greenland Plaza.
