That cladding looks amazing, this building looks amazing, I can't wait until it's finished!!


So people will not be able to stand right next to the windows it looks like? That's kind of odd

Hi Jay.

The first level of each zone (the level above each belt truss) will be a sky garden. People will be able to get next to the outer cladding on these levels.

Extraordinary cladding scheme, but I would be disappointed having an office and not being able to view the outside right up against it.

Therefore, the towers would have to be over a kilometer tall to get that shot.

The moon can also only be overhead in the tropics, in which Shanghai is definitely not located.

Actually, quite close! Sun goes 23°30´ from equator, which is as far as Guangzhou; Moon actually goes as far as 28° 30´... and that is less than 3 degrees from Shanghai.
