Thanks for the video¡¡¡
It's great that they decided to create this lighting effect at the top of the tower, it will be really amazing, once the tower is finished, probably the most fascinating tower in the world.

It Reminds me a little the Agbar Tower in Barcelona that during weekends lights of different colors, but of course, the Shanghai Tower is going to be really spectacular to see in person, now I have the excuse to go again to Shanghai

Good point. At least in some languages (e.g. my native Lithuanian) the word tower is male. So is skyscraper. And so is Shanghai for that matter.

Shanghai Tower is a girl, and here's why

Imagine it's a cloudy day... An attractive woman is walking through the doorway wearing a form fitting dress and a semi-sheer top layer... As she walks through the door, the clouds part, and you can see the silhouette of her curves underneath that semi sheer top.

THAT is what the ST will look like in the right light!

i have a quick question....(i really don't want to pour over 600 pages to find out) so this building is like a tower inside a tower right? so is there going to be windows on the inside tower or are the offices going to be open to the outside tower (atriums)?

Yes, it's like a tower in a tower. There are going to be two layers of cladding/glass and the sky-gardens in between.

thanks so much. another question though? why are they doing the outer layer first as opposed to the inner.....seems counter intuitive. or i could be blindly missing whats right in front of me.

People have speculated that it would be so that things like weather don't stop the cladding process and they can clad whenever they need/want to.

Shanghai has already one of the nicest skylines but once this baby is done it will be epic.
