I probably shouldn't be encouraging us to go off topic, but I have to admit I find the physics behind 9/11 to be fascinating.
For me 9/11 physics are interesting too. In order to not get off topic in this thread I have made my own thread about 9/11 physics. Here is the link:

First version of the diagram, still bunch of work to do:
1) Complete the cross section diagram on the entire tower.
2) Add another 1 or 2 towers for comparison (suggestions?)
3) Edit the background image (too dark)
4) Create layers and components in order to modify it faster
5) Add general information (floors data, elevations, core info, etc.. etc.. etc)

I encourage you to search for errors and post any info you would like to see in the diagram. The more info it has, the more accurate and complete it'll be.

Even though the skyline looks amazing, there are too many ugly, lifeless intersections like the one above in Lujiazui/Pudong. More recreation/shopping/restaurants would fit well here.

I agree, Lujiazui is nice from a distance, but the area itself is really boring. No streetlife at all. All buildings are focussed on the inside and view from the top. Pudong is so quiet, compared to Puxi. Don't think this tower will change that.

Nice pictures!

I'd suggest you add Hongkong towers (ICC and 2IFC). This way it would be a complete China supertall diagram

There's more to Chinese supertalls than Shanghai and Hong Kong.

True, though he wanted 1 or 2 buildings so I named the 2 most famous Chinese buildings that he didn't include in his diagram

I've heard that most people work in that area are brown-baggers.

Well, it makes sense. Who's got time for lunch outside everyday? When I used to work in Xintiandi I still brought packed lunch.
