Not sure whether this has been posted before, but for those who haven't seen it, it has a 1 hour 40 minute video that provides a fascinating insight of the architectural design and structural engineering of this building. Not to be missed by fans of this building.

Thanks! Very informative after the first 7 minutes (I don't have time to watch it entirely now though).

E.g. recently there has been the question here, if Shanghai Tower will have the highest observation deck. On 41:40 the presentation shows, that the top floor will be at 480 meters. So if that's an obs floor, the answer is yes, and you might look down a bit to people up the SWFC nearby at "only" 474 meters! But if this top floor of ST has another purpose, it might be the other way round...

Lights - NOT NECCESSARY to speed them up.


This is China and they will probably construct like the world of Chinese Paintings!

I really love the way they are - peaceful and beautiful.
