My favorite design for this project didn't win but i'm sure that it will look amazing when it's finished. 610m is unbelievably tall, the only way you can truly appreciate the height is by actually seeing it in real life.

i still only look at this structure as 450m.with a 160m spike on top.
i mean the spike could be 30m high or 300m high .
CN tower seems to be more flowing design. you probably wont see the spike from ground level.only when from a distance.

id say the current height would be 40m-50m.
bamboo is actually really strong, as strong as steel scaffolding

^indeed bamboo is one of the most surprising substances on the planet, i've always wondered why you never see massive bamboo structures or bamboo reinforced concrete, its used for scaffolding on account of its cheapness so why not?

Anyway this is the most amazing construction project going up right now in my eyes, its such an unconventional design, and the size of those steel tubes is incredible. I look forward to watching this rise over the next few years its gonna be awesome.

Fire Safety and the material is not as permanent.
Anyway, bamboo reinforced concrete can be found in many small-scale buildings.

Hi all.
What a cool looking structure. Open looking structure instead of all concrete.
In an earlier shot in this thread I noticed how huge the structure is that is being built surrounding the base - but not part of the base of the tower.
Tried searching out some new construction pics - to no avail - but I will keep searching.

The only thing i have trouble`s with is the sudden stop at the roof whilest it looks better if it would have a nice transistion from roof to spire.

i think this is one of the most unique design for a TV Tower. and i like it! looks very elegant. however i do agree about the sudden stop at the roof thingy...
