i think they have made the best look size .. not the one in 3D model the last year exhibition, but i think its segments r little.. that what decreases its beauty

i dont like the spire at all, there is no need for it, it looks totally out of place, and from what i can tell it isnt used in any sort of communications way so its just silly. if they wanted to make it taller they should have kept to the symetrical design and put it ontop in the middle. not off to the side. =)

my favourite part of this building has always been the way the top sections intersect with each other.

It is very nice and I am thoroughly impressed with this building. My only complainte is that the spire should have been built on top of the ball.

It will be interesting to see the lighting scheme they employ for the top of this building when completed. If done right, this could be stunning at night.

Maybe that's a shower head and that's how they'll clean the tower

In the evening it was lowered.

i know! thanks.. was hard to explain and i didnt have my camera with me! Maybe its a cheap method of cleaning the building, spraying water, then they just have to wipe it? its a giant shower as altind sed

... remove the other spire, remove the showerhead, leave the stick on top of the ball, and its the perfect tower!
