hello everyone

i am a senior civil engineering student and preparing a case study paper on the pearl river tower for a course ı'm taking about tall buildings. i need to analyze the structural system of this building in detail and need some scaled structural plan drawings but i couln't find any over the internet or any books. there are non-scaled layout plans in the book "The architecture of Adrian Smith, SOM : toward a sustainable future" but it is better if i could find more accurate drawings.

i managed to find information about the structural system in one paper from the website of ASCE and the SOM book and that's all.

i appreciate any help you could provide me..

the photos from the construction site are very helpful by the way, thank you.

looking forward to your answers

For anyone who's interested, the National Geographics channel aired Megastructures: Pearl River Tower tonight at 8pm EST.

Looks like a giant electric shaver... I quite like it, although the original renders made it look a lot better than how it turned out.

Looks like the cladding is done. This turned out fantastically.
