this building is being built with the same technique that was building the tower chicago spire (610 meters), and was canceled . I always think, why did not finish? and why the construction was canceled? many say by physical aspects of the structure and others say by financial aspects

Concrete core has topped out, but the crown has yet to be built. Hope that helps.

It fits just fine to me, Pudong is diverse, not just futuristic.

A bit kitschy, but it brings variation in this collection of styles.

It's indeed not that bad, it just doesn't fit very well between the other towers.
