Yayyyy finally! It has been a long time coming. When I moved to Shanghai they hadn't even started digging for the pylons yet.

You'd think with the world's 2nd tallest building reaching full height there would be more media fanfare. Hopefully when it is completed there will be.

Bamboo is incredibly strong and has been used as scaffolding for skyscrapers before, so I wouldn't doubt it.

Fantastic to see it topped out. Now it's a race to see the roof work and cladding completed
