New Tower in Guangzhou will be a Hyperboloid!

The tallest tower in Guangzhou will be a hyperboloid structure!

There were better designs proposed but this is still good although I agree about the stupid spire.

Tower in Guangzhou is very similar to "Vortex Tower"

The design of new Tower in Guangzhou is very similar
to project "The Vortex" by Ken Shuttleworth:

Yes the spire definately wrecks the whole design. I reckon the design is kinda dodgy anywayz

If you don't like,don't reply man..
Nobody ask your opinion about the city.
The post is about the tower , why do you have to mention about the opposite face of the city.
Why don't you care about your stuffs, newbie..

These are the latest photos of Guangzhou,
please name a city in your country which is not dirty, not polluted and much more beautiful than Guangzhou. Or maybe we can compare skyscrapers, condos, houses, food, entermaintent, TV, Moive, Night clubs, Airport, Highway, railway ,subway, parks, mountains, forest. Anything you want to compare. Thanks

Concerning the Guangzhou Tower,

If you can' say anything nice about something then don't say anything at all.

I'll keep my comments to myself then.

I think it looks sleek and really cool and modern, but i think it should be much taller, after the twins get built close by it wont be so tall anymore, and the point in building a tall tv-tower is ( i guess) to be taller then anything around, including mountains so it can broadcast its signals to as many people as possible. Maybe it will be blocked by other tall buildings now and thats why they have to make it taller (in my opinion)
