It looks like a monster because tou can see the raw structure that is needed to lift the bulk off the buildings weight and it isnt clean but after construction they clean it and clad it so it is gonna look coowl and friendly

I like the way the steel tubes are rotating around the building. Realy looks good.

Cheers

Very cool stuff! I just found a Guangzhou TV tower video that describes the detailed process of construction and the schedule and management of the whole project.
The web page is in Chinese, but the video is very easy to understand.

this is the most amazing observation deck ive ever seen?
At 450m its higher then Burj Dubais!
i think the whole top section is multi levels of observation? from 430m-450m.
the main deck is approx 440m high.
fyi- its 35m dia at top and 53m at base. The middle section narrows to 16m dia with internal concrete shaft being 9m dia.
