Shanghai has to be considered as the eighth wonder of the world--despite stiff competition from Dubai. They have advantages over cities like New York and London where developers have to fight to acquire every square foot. Must be nice to decree that your super tall has space to build on.

It's the best cladding I've ever seen, on the best tower I've ever seen I reckon.

It looks great. I can't wait for the 5th truss belt which must be ready to go.

Weather or wind loading.

Looking fantastic!

The question is how will they clean indoor cladding?

I guess they will do it from the sky-gardens (between inner and outer cladding). Should be easier to clean than the outer facade.

Once clean, would the inner cladding even need re-cleaning?

for sure, dirt is everywhere. may be it won't be necessary to clean it as often as the outer cladding...but they definitely have to clean it from time to time .
