That's what a lot of people call that building, I think.

For a bottle-opener it was a bit large(and expensive I believe 300Rmb) due to the correct size/ratio they use to fit the bottle in the top

But thanks to the large lever it's easy to open a couple of beers.

The prices on these items are insane. I think they demanded 500rmb for a metal statue/bottle opener of the SWFC.

Glass Innit?

So seeing all the post about when the cladding will start I looked down into the site this morning and saw these. Also visible on other shots by other contributors.

So is this cladding waiting to go up?

Looks a bit small to me.

that's what it looks like at least. Also, as the cladding is not on a flat surface, size of each part might be smaller than usual to give a rounder effect.
