Hope all the other ongoing projects could learn a serious lesson from this horrible tragedy.

I think it would be great if China built more Asian inspired skyscrapers like the jin mao tower. It looks amazing!

I also think that they should!! Jin Mao is pretty impressive in real life and it would be nice to give the skyline a bit of local flavour!

Gosh, the floor plates must be quite big to offset such a huge core!
