This building is spectacular. The Shanghai Tower is my third favorite building, after the Taipei 101 and my all time favorite, One World Trade Center. Especially love the cladding.

Sorry out of topic. Why does the moon appear so big at northern latitudes? Its quite beautiful I could almost check if Chang'e is really lives there? Its unfair I live in further south.

It's achievable by a telephoto lens.

The moon appears bigger when lower in the sky because you have the surrounding ground objects to compare it to. When high in the night sky, you have nothing to compare it to, so it is relatively small against the backdrop of space.

This.

The angle of view of a lens changes your perception of distance, a long/telephoto lens with a narrow angle of view will make distant objects appear larger relative to close ones, a wideangle lens will do the opposite.

Nice photos! I wonder how it's going to look at night once it's completed.

Thanks for the photos! These both show that there will be one more crane jump, soon to come... (left and right cranes both have another crane support added right at the top)

I should tell you that there's a lot of information on the first two pages, especially the first. (You probably know that but you're new, and I wouldn't want you to miss out on info.

Look on Wikipedia, too. It's not completely reliable, so don't get any really detailed info unless you know it's true. To know it's true, just check any other websites (the websites that end in .gov are the most reliable).I'm a new person on the site, but I've been reading it for the past year, so I know a lot about the building (it's my third favorite building!)

If you want information about the design itself, then I can tell you that it's a twisting tower, it has a special crown that is not twisting but used for rainwater collection, and it's divided into sections that can be shown by two black lines separating the tower into parts. (You could stack twisting pieces on top of each other. )

Here's something from Wikipedia:

Sustainability[edit source | editbeta]
The design of the tower's glass fašade is intended to reduce wind loads on the building by 24%. This reduces the amount of construction materials needed; the Shanghai tower used 25% less structural steel than a conventional design of a similar height.[15] As a result, the building's constructors are expected to save an estimated US$58 million in material costs.[20] Though the majority of the tower's energy will be provided by conventional power systems, vertical-axis wind turbines located near the top of the tower will generate up to 350,000 kWh of supplementary electricity per year.[16] The double-layered insulating glass fašade is intended to reduce the need for indoor air conditioning, and is composed of an advanced reinforced glass with a high tolerance for shifts in temperature.[21] In addition, the building's heating and cooling systems will use geothermal energy sources.[22]

The owners of the Shanghai Tower, Shanghai Tower Construction and Development, hope to be awarded certifications from the China Green Building Committee and the U.S. Green Building Council for the building's sustainable design.[1]

What? When they were cladding, they were going at a very fast rate. Without going back through pages of pictures, I'm not even sure if they've done any cladding in months. If they have, they are purposely going slow. I would imagine that they will start back at a quick pace shortly or perhaps when the rest of the outer skeleton gets finished up to where the core is now
