Yes. That groove is perfect for one of those guys to try it.

I was in Shanghai in 1987 and it's completely unrecognizable from the way it looked then. I really want to go back again and I'd love to see this building in person. It's my favorite project in the world and it's really shaping up to be spectacular when completed. I'm particularly interested to see how they're going to do the lighting and how that's going to appear with two walls of glass.

What an extraordinary building! I love the double-skinned facade. Should be one of the world's great buildings when completed.
