If whose being honest? If we're being honest, then it was an expression of opinion. Are you really too unintelligent to accept differing opinions?

ST is about 3/4 bigger than Guangzhou IFC in terms of 'tower GFA'.

The cladding is far too transparent, you can see the "guts" of the building making the entire structure look like a complicated mess from up close. It's not streamlined at all.

How many floors of core left? My diagram suggests 2 more of concrete core, the 2 steel for the observation level, the 3 steel mechanical, and then the crown.

I don't think you would like the Lloyd's "inside-out" building

Some of the trees might be about 12m tall.

This is the compromise as the panels must be flat and not curved. Now populate the sections with landscaping and art and this building will be #1.

I'm smart enough to know the difference. And it's "who's," genius.

I have really started to come around on this, although from some angles the curviness still makes me a little queasy.

The indoor plaza levels are going to be wonderful, something that's never been done before, at least on this scale. But the visual impression -- although I'm sure it's not the business reality -- is that there's a lot of wasted floor space. Looking in through the glass, the cylindrical core of the tower, where people will actually be working, looks actually very thin in relation to the silhouette of the outer shell.

I think they should put a waterslide at the top of the building.
