Nope, can't see a GIF - just the text. I'm using Firefox, I don't think that would affect it.

Perhaps, my work firewall is blocking it.

Thanks! Saw it fine at home... Apparently .CN domains are blocked at work. Periodically, some pics on this thread don;t show up for that reason - but I HAD to see that GIF.

Thanks again for sharing it.

And it's not that the renders looked horrible!
One of the first modern skyscrapers that I just don't like, but adore and can see lasting time amazingly well.

I was in Shanghai last week and had my host make reservations for dinner at SWFC, but at the last minute I turned it down. I said "it's too smoggy and we won't see anything" I AM A FOOL! So we just took the Mag-Lev train to the hotel. At least that was a nice 8 minute ride...

Looking up from this close angle it is at its best. I love the elegant curves of this tower.

I stayed at the Ease Airport Hotel South at PVG. The Mag-Lev goes directly into the airport and hotel.
