Does anyone know - is that network of metal bars scaffolding on the outside of the crown, or is it actually part of the crown?

I took this before work this morning. Looks like they are testing the lighting. The lower podium levels have clear glass. The upper ones are less clear as they have the exterior lighting.
Actually looking again whst has the lighting is the 'cut'. Will try and get better pictures

The mass damper is already in place. I believe those are crane supports for the smaller crane that will take the place of the current red crane.

The newly installed steel structure is the framework of the crown.

Not at the moment, no. I believe it will be removed when the boom of the crane is obstructed by the framework of the crown.

First watch 18.43 - 21.02 from this documentary on Shanghai Tower:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKIWAv4CLtw

Why is the more rigid 180-degree twisting tower more expensive to build?

Hey.
Isn't there a nice Shanghai landscape including those 3 'big's from above for a nice wallpaper or do we have to wait till the Shanghai tower opens?

And, hi again after seven years
