Is this being built without a core? The construction method looks a lot like the modular system used by Broad Group and their BSB record breaking towers.

I think this might be the drop that forces me to finally visit London. Holy effing shit that thing looks good. I guess you know you have an amazing building when the visualizations are completely honest photo-realistic renders instead of glamour shots.

Thuis building will probably get its strength en rigidity from the huge diagonal beams. No need for a core.
