Diagrams just compare this tower to other supertalls which have already been built. Its purpose is not to show design and details, but to show scale, size and height :p

I think the same; i dont know if floor levels rise fast or the core is slow down. But in the other hand, on the core i can see those steel columns (they didnt existed in previous photos).

Surely those cranes have to jump soon. They are being overtaken by the steel floor beams.

It is a known fact that the Shanghai Tower is twisted, but a source also said that the Shanghai World Financial Centre is twisted. How is the SWFC "twisted", anyway?
