Sorry for making an assumption.

Thanks for these fabulous pictures of a futuristic-looking downtown, little universe.
Shanghai is in my "world's top 5 skylines".

Great pictures lowai, you are our window on the most interesting construction in the world. Please don't draw the blinds.
Looking at your fourth pic you can see loads of cladding stacked inside ready to fit. I wonder how they get them up there.

No, BM Plaza is too far away from the Bund.
My guess is the roof of CITIC Plaza: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...=668600&page=6

One question...usually when one is building a supertall, you leave a slither of cladding open to allow air circulation until you have installed proper ventilation later in the building process. Here, the cladding seems to completely cover the circumference?

I would say no. These beams seem to be quite important for the cladding in my eyes.
