2010 was a great year for guangzhou, completing a building over 400m and the worlds tallest tower.
2011 will be another great year for guangzhou with completing 3 more supertalls.

They really need to fix the cladding on the narrow sides... the effect that they were going for in the renders just isn't working.

I think he is talking about the cross effect on the sides. Yes they really don't look good. Seems like some glass parts are missing or not cut to the right size. It's same on the wide sides, they are some holes in cladding. Maybe pieces that got broken and have to be produced once more.

On my way back home, there was a huge shattered window lying in the middle of the street in front of another building nearby. The guys are probably not the most careful ones out there.

I like the X's. But I do wish they were just one color. Hopefully those brown panels are just temporary.

Like the rest of the building, the X's aren't finished yet. It'll look great when they are.

A truly revolutionary building in its design and the technology it is trying to experiment with. I hope it would be a success and be a self reliant building.
