These are definitely some of the classiest looking skyscrapers I've seen under proposal in recent years! Guangzhou will look great. =)

I really love the Pearl River Tower design, but interesting that a small part of the Sydney skyline is in the background of this rendering (on right hand side), being the MLC Centre (tall octagonal shaped black and white horizontal striped tower), Colonial Mutual Centre (dark, stepped tower on far right) and Westpac HQ (short boxy tower in front of MLC).

Haha yeah I noticed that too, but it's just an artistic thing. You'll find tons of renders of buildings around the world using features of other cities and countries for some reason...

Chinese architects use a lot of other architects buildings for inspirations. It's as if they want to have a copy of ever existing skyscraper in their country, and then some.

Out of Symphony tower and it's Chinese clone, I still prefer the original.
