One odd thing about the core of this building - I'm curious why it doesn't get smaller as it gets higher, eg. do you need as many lift shafts and stairwells in the section from floor 100-112 as you do at ground level? If you look at other tall concrete core buildings then a lot of them do get thinner as they go higher. Burj Dubai, Shard of Glass in London. It's a bit hard to tell if it is thinner - but it doesn't look like it.

What you are seeing in the structuarl diagram is not all of the core. The blue parts also include floorplates, whcich do not change much in size.

You can't see it from those models, but what happens is that every set of mechanical floors extends out into the glass, between each set makes a huge atrium with the regular floors inside the core. You can see it well in this picture

I like the old podium so much better.. it actually flows with the building, i bet the new podium was somehow changed by those old school Chinese governor to suit their view of aesthetics...

May be the old podium is too small, the governor are struggling to make more supporting facilities in this area.

The space utilization ratio of this tower is quite low I think.

Those floors which extend to the outer layer could provide a better view, but they will be used to install all these frames to withstand the shear force.

Just look how huge the actual tower is in comparison to the core at base level!

Witnessing the whole process of the construction of this super beauty is one of the most exciting moments in my life.
When it's completed in 2014, Shanghai will be more beautiful.

Interesting. It is quite clear that the core does get smaller.

I think the gold coloured podium would be better, and that is what it shows on the official website.

can't wait until at least one section has been finished, so that the overall shape starts to be visible.
