Backside, behind, posterior, side less seen. Also, this building is most definitely not the same on both sides.

French article (11/02/10)

projets-architecte-urbanisme.fr



...Conçue comme une aile géante, la tour est capable de profiter des vents d’altitude pour faire tourner des turbines situées aux jointures du bâtiments. Le design aérodynamique de la coque permet aux vents de s’engouffrer dans ces interstices. L’énergie ainsi produite couvrira tous les besoins de lumière. Mais ce n’est pas tout : les vents font aussi fonctionner un système d’aération et de climatisation...

It won't. The wind, too, is patriotic in China.

Looks cheap because of the protection layers, that's how it is going to look like when completed.
