The attachments to the floor plates provide lateral support. Otherwise, the vertical loads are suspended between the belt trusses via tension.

The render that shows a view looking up inside one of the Sky Gardens seems to show it. While it may look flimsy, I am sure the outer curtain wall must be very strong to hold all that glass and withstand wind forces. SUPER strong!

You should see the other side of the river. For much of the decade Shanghai's
council had to build more highrise space than Manhattan every year, to cope
with 1 million newcomers ever year.



The area you posted, Pudong, is in the small bend of the river, top right.

the tower itself has allot of delay, it was planned to reach the top height by the end of 2012, but that would be impossible... I recently visited Shanghai and I thought that the weren't working so hard/fast, probably they are having troubles financing the tower....

They don't have any trouble to finance it, but they do encounter quite a lot difficulties to build it, because "a lot of things have never been done before".

I hope that they will light ST better than Jin Mao which is not visible.

What I love of Shanghai is the contrast between both riverbanks

This tower should be surrounded by more skyscrapers, it makes this part of Shanghai look a bit small or brief.

Now I see this photo I'm really wondering how they want to achieve the necessary accuracy of the construction in order to fit the facade elements in between. The facade has to be wind and air tight but looking at these pictures where the workers are pulling the beams to the left and to the right I'm wondering how this can be achieved. Espacially since the outer facade is like 10 meters away from the inner one and the weight of the glass is enormous!

Hope the facade consultants and contractors know what they're doing...

Flimsy was a wrong word to use. Maybe only in comparison to super columns and bolting cladding to concrete edges. I'm sure the engineers did their jobs with calculating what was needed. But you're right, the weight of the glass, way out there, hanging! wow

This whole project does look like an engineering challenge.

It certainly is one of a kind. Besides, innovation is what makes society and history progress. So far China has a skyscraper that generates lots of its power from wind, and now this new style of building. Good job.

Yeah. It seems they have had to use to the new technique, but now they are speeding up nicely.
