Absolutely stunning series of photos! It's like a sci-fi monolith from the future just dropped from the sky into the present day.

With a big structure like that, I am sure it will grow on everyone. In a decade later, whenever people mention about Guangzhou, this TV tower will be first iconic that pop in everyone mind. The red and white spike is never bother me at all. Matter of fact, I think it gives a character to this tower; otherwise, it is too feminine.

I don't think so...

I belive those white and red strips on the antena are for visibility reasons.

Oriental Pearl in Shanghai also have them.

It's an international standard practice. Look around where you live and I'm sure you'll find the same color/pattern on other antennae towers. I can see one just like it next to a freeway where I live and it's only about a hundred feet tall.
