Personally, I like the design of SWFC just as much as Jin Mao. Yes, Jin Mao is very intricate and beautiful, but SWFC is very classy in its own right. It didn't win the best skyscraper of the year when it was finished for nothing, after all.

It might have won it for the year because there was no other tower that was half decent? Who were the competitors for that year?

Gensler Design Update

Was this link posted here before? I have seen individual pictures/graphs, but not all of them together:

Does anyone else think this building looks relatively small (skinny) in person? The renderings make it look like the base is much bigger than Jin Mao or SWFC, but this will be one skinny 2000 foot tower, that's for sure. Not that that's a bad thing

I have seen in different projects the average speed of core growth is between 1 and 2 floors per week, so you can get an idea.

At the last comparison picture, you can see the core grew just one floor in 3 weeks, but keep in mind the special holidays China just went through.
