Why does shanghai tower always feels like its leaning backwards? Is it just the render?
I've wondered the same thing looking at the angle of the supercolumns in the photos above and please correct me if I'm wrong but I don't believe they are vertical but that they really are leaning at an angle because this building has a very unusual shape with various twists and turns as it gets higher. If you look at a couple of the photos with the supercolumns and compare their angle to veritical structures behind them they they appear to be leaning inwards. I don't think that's due to the angle of the photograph.

^

The supercolumns taper to the centre of the core as the tower rises... if you go back some pages and do some searching, there are quite a few structural diagrams that show the taper and the reduction in floor plate size

Oh shoot! They're preparing for the cladding!

Is that the top of the podium circled in the first picture?

I don't really like the Pearl Tower. I think it spoils the spectacular skyline of the bend in the river.

They are not going to install cladding now people. This parts will be connected to the curtain wall but they are not part of it...

Probably not for a while, it's hard to put a month to it. Impossible actually
