They could plant ivy at the bottom and have it climb the tower.

Interesting, but I think white is the right choice. It will look stunning!

On the other hand, I think the horizon strikes of green and white would be lovely. Make it eight bands of light green, and eight bands of white. I know Guangzhou people would love anything to do with number "8".

This is an amazing tower, especially since it is essentially complete. It is definitely my favorite tower, and to think just the spire on top of the main structure would stick out in my city!
about the colours:
How about white vertical structure, rainbow horizontal, with the colour changing up the building, and the diagonals some other colour, like metallic gold to stand out, and shine, or black to make them not very visible, or maybe coloured like the horizontal beams, except the colours spiraling upwards.
just my ideas

It doesn't matter whether it's boring or not, it's WHITE so we'll just have to live with it!

Oh gee, I just created an imagination monster. I forgot to mention it was a photoshop touch. I mask the clane, and add some other things. Just to make a point of my version of final product. Truly sorry, folks.
