Looks like inner cladding. The interesting thing is that the glass is perfectly flat with a slight curve on the ends. Also those 'ends' are all different lengths, and may flip outwards when they are ready to install them? KEEP THE PICS COMING!

Amazing pictures! This twisted cladding around a straight inner core is so clever! I guess Infinity Tower would be a lot faster with this technique!!

My bad, i must have gotten the name confused because the building had a huge 'diamond' on it.

In the latest diagram, does "323*" stand for the current height?
