Anyone got any news for official opening? I have a guess that once this building is done, they will reveal the final render of Shanghai Center and start the ground work on next week or two. Then, someone will propose another tall building (taller than Shanghai Center) and the cycle is back again

I'm sorry, but although I like this building and I have nothing against it, the design is ruined by the square hole. The interaction between the tapering lines of the building and the circle made it a far more graceful structure - a truly beautiful one. Now it really is just ugly. It's the Chinese government that I hate for ruining an awesome design, not the architects. Stupid Chinese government doesn't even realize the circle was a Chinese shape.

Yes, I am well aware of that. That's why I'm complaining.
