Ha! maybe a little, but to me, looks a bit more like a sand worm from the movie version of Dune.

Is the body of water at the bottom of the image the mouth of the Yangtze River?

After all, I still consider than it doesn't suit the place. Look at all those flat, angular buildings around (except Oriental Pearl Tower). And then this twisting, nearly rounded in cross section thing comes up and becomes the highest. They definitely should have built something more agressive, SWFC- or Jin Mao-stylish.

I don't think it needs to be more aggressive, it has a gentle-giant like essence to it. It almost looks like a big plant the way it twists, and of course the color.

I would love to see this building in person someday though, I have to remind myself that my country's tallest buildings are more or less between the height of Jin Mao and SWFC And those knock me off my feet in person. This one is just insane!
