Nice update!

Finally the legs joined, so it probably wont take too long until the scaffolding will be dismantled.

The scaffolding has to be hanging off something. There's no way it could support its own weight at that height.

I'd assume that the scaffolding is being supported by the legs/tubes of the tower itself rather than on it's own. I'm sure the scaffolding can reach unprecedented heights since it's anchored to the tower.

I've also wondered about the scaffolding because it seems like such a massive thing just by itself. I thought it would probably stop at a lower point and different construction techniques might be used but they just keep adding more levels to it. It will be interesting when the shape of the base which is triangular gradually changes to a rounder shape as it gets higher because if they're still using the scaffolding it's going to have to change shape as well.

Has it already been mentioned what the purpose of the scaffolding is for? Is it to paint the steel? I just can't quite work it out.

I asked the same question earlier but didn't get a response but I did see a photo that showed two workers on the scaffolding who appeared to be working on the area where the sections of tubing are connected and it also appears that there may be some additional scaffolding inside that allows workers access the the inner tubes. I'm sure there's a logical reason for using this construction method that I am not aware of but the scaffoding is so massive that it's obviously requiring a great deal of effort and it makes me wonder why the GZtv tower, which has a similar set of connecting tubes, was able to be constructed in a different manner.

I've wondered about whether the triangular structure of the scaffolding is just to make it stronger and self-supporting. With the ends tied together it's forming a tube of it's own.

The whole scaffolding is also a mystery for me to, but I don't think it will grow all the way up. Right now the structure is 54 meter according to the official website, although that was 1 week ago but I don't think it grew any higher since then. And building scaffolding 54 meters high isn't really something special of course. And it's probably used to get access to the joints between all the steel parts for welding them together among other things. From what I've seen here on SSC I'm always amazed how many building techniques there are, even if the structure looks the same it's often different.

Right now they're are working on the legs to bring them all three to the same height. And that hasn't finished as you can see on the right part of the picture.

When it's all even it will be interesting what will happen, probably a raise of the cranes and maybe the end of the scaffolding.

Thanks for the responses. I also don't believe it will go all the way up. In fact, I'm surprised it has gone up to this height. Even if the scaffolding was additionally attached to the tower, then surely the increasing weight would be too great for the lower levels. I would have thought that light tubular steel can't keep on taking such load bearing weights.
Thanks to those taking pics. Much appreciated.

It looks nothing like the Eiffel Tower . . .

Sky Tree is triangular and then circular at the top. Eiffel Tower is square all the way up. Eiffel Tower has two floors that are at very low heights. Sky Tree has two decks that are up at the top of the tower. Sky Tree has a gigantic antenna on top. Eiffel Tower has no antenna on top. Sky Tree has a central core. Eiffel Tower is hollow. Sky Tree is a TV Tower. Eiffel Tower was part of a fair and then became nothing more than a tower people can go up in. Sky Tree is part of a large complex. Eiffel Tower stands alone. Sky Tree has triangular "arches" cut between the legs. Eiffel Tower has circular arches between the legs.

The ONLY similarity is the exoskeleton, but that doesn't count because dozens of towers have exoskeletons. It's just the easiest way to build a tower because it's light, cheap, and strong. Guangzhou TV Tower is an exoskeleton, but that doesn't make it a copy of the Eiffel Tower.

Remember that Eiffel was going to tear down the Eiffel Tower after the fair was over, but since it became such a popular tourist spot and attraction, he decided to leave it. I don't think he really cared THAT much about his creation, since he knew it was going to be temporary.

I'm pretty sure that CULWULLA-san is aware of the differences in design between both towers.

The scaffolding is now at the same height all around the tower, and in the blog the picture is posted the writer says it's complete now. I don't know if he means that the current row is complete or that the scaffolding is complete and won't get any higher.

We just have to wait and then we will see it all happening for ourselves on our computer screens, even at the other side of the world!
