Just refering to the following image, My ruff calculations give it a base to height ratio of 1:9. However, if the base is not included this ratio becomes 1:13!!!

THATS INSANE!!

Thx Altin.

I still havent had a confirmation or reaction about the ratio of the tower. Its amazing that they have built it so thin! I would love it if it were just for this reason but there are a number of other beautiful things about it
