I imagine the possibility of how it light at night with the inner vs. outer cladding. The inner core cladding lighting would make it like an exortic jellyfish feel. Plus, the outside lighting at the edge of the pirals would move up 'n down with changing color.

I'm sorry, but i still can't see how the glass is installed. It doesn't look as if it's directly mounted on the buildings like other towers, it seems like there something else installed that holds it in place, so what's keeping the people from falling out the tower. I know it sounds stupid but this is really confusing.

Suspended metal frame attached to the tower. It is well visible in photos.

and there will be a second set of windows. They will attach to the round part of the building.

the glass you see going up now is the outer atrium layer.

Here you go. The glass being installed atm is the glass on the outside of this picture, and the interior glass will be installed later. The office space and residential rooms are inside the inner glass wall. Also you can see that the glass is attached to the framing which is connected to the main part of the tower. Also the "floor" that you can see in this picture is one of the belt trusses, which are every 8 floors iirc, and these connect to the outer glass wall.

China in the construction of skyscrapers to be several times more than this website.

The whole of China are building the site, the air is very bad! Our urbanization rate of 51 percent, according to 75% of the country's urbanization rate construction requirements, it is estimated that 20 years, but also to build skyscrapers!

I can understand how someone might look at the structure that's holding the outside cladding in place and wonder how in the world it can support it but I have no doubt that if you could look at the support system close up you'd see that it's sturdy and rock solid and may just appear to be a bit flimsy from a distance. This building has been brilliantly designed and engineered and because the outer cladding is something unique there's no question that every factor such as the weight of the cladding, the pressure from the wind, etc. was taken into account when they came up with this method of supporting it.
