So the space between the core and glass facade will be empty? What is the purpose of this solution?

I'd love to see also the advances in the smaller buildings surrounding the tower.

Are you serious man? Carry on looking at the pics, or GTFO. You have no idea what ST is.

The spiraling inclined curved outer skin features laminated glass panels that filter the sun, wind and rain. The inner skin encloses the interior space with a conventional unitized low-E coated insulating glass curtain wall system with integral operable solar control devices. This double skin wall system takes advantage of the stack effect to provide natural ventilation and cooling. The buffer areas between the inner and outer skins, helps to regulate the environment and collect and recycle rain water.

The design of the tower project will incorporate the latest sustainable design technology, including innovative skin technologies, self-sustaining energy and waste systems, a double curtain wall system and wind turbines as a source of power for the building. The project will seek certification as a LEED project by the China Green Building Council (in association with the USGBC).
