Taken from top floor of the condo hotel beside the office tower.

Window dirty and morning fog was dense, so picture not clear... apologise.

That's a bidet. A french thingy that nobody knows what it is for. But originally, it was used for washing your but after you went to the toilet. So you don't have to use toilet paper.

No it's a quite common object in every hotel or luxury apartment.

OK, wait, are you seriously telling me there are people on this forum who don't know what a bidet is? Are you a bunch of friggin' 12 year olds? Have you ever been to ANY hotel? Pretty much any 3-star hotel in any country, including the US, has a bidet in the bathroom.

not a big fan of the cladding of this tower. It doesn't look very high quality.

In Europe, people use bidet for washing feets...
I have it at home, but nobody use it because we just take a shower at the end of day and go to bed...
But purpose of bidet is for washing feets...

I think the design is unique. Have you seen another building of this shape? It is just the cladding doesn't feel like in very high quality like the Guangzhou West Tower or SWFC. The night shot is great.

this is one of the most beautiful skyscrapers around.
It is also placed very well in the city, but to appreciate this i guess you should be in Tianjin. Cladding is fine in real life the main tower and apartment building next to it look very high quality.

another shot from uncommon angle:
