Its so large because inside it will carry all the wires, cooling systems, pipes etc, so in the end it will have a lot of space.

You haven't seen any modern skyscraper build, have you? just surf this web site a little bit.

most of the time, steel is painted in this simple anti rust paint.

This building is designed to withstand a nuke. That is the reason for huge columns. It will house PLAAF commanders.

I like the cladding in the test! I sincerely hope that this ends up looking like the renders.
