Why are they slowed down? Because of crack?

I couldn't provide any links, but the information was given by the wife of a project manager. There is really no reason to doubt its credibility.

By the way, photoed by 葛清, design director of the project, sample of the inner cladding seems had passed the fire resistance test (It remained intact after 40 minutes of inferno).

They all are great. I hope for the "flower" or the "bamboo crown" though.

Wow, that last shot from Kix makes it clear on how quickly the supercolumns are converging on the core. Do I remember correctly that they're gonna make the core slimmer higher up?
