Does anyone have any info on the lighting scheme for this building? Will it just be random? Or will the trusses be lit up similar to the Guangzhou IFC?

I've seen the videos and pictures and it seems that it's a "random" lighting scheme :/

Personally, I propose the trusses be lit up red, to go with Jin Mao's yellow crown and SWFC's blue outline and front

Amusing is that the Oriental Pearl as an observation platform is by far smaller than the buildings in its vicinty.

Probably, what with the changing core shape, slanted super-columns, and just the sheer height it'll reach. Remember about a month and a half ago, the floors' vertical progress slowed down dramatically because they were building the truss? I predict it'll slow down like that every time they're building the trusses. Add in the fact that they have to raise building material hundreds of feet in the air at that point and we could see the upper trusses taking a month or a month and a half.

But, I'm no Shanghai Tower expert, so don't take me too seriously
