So buildings like this would be overlooked if in a non-communist nation? What are you trying to say?

well, another guy from Indiana. Does Indiana ever have anybody who can talk with a little bit intelligence? Or did we ever come across anyone from Indiana who doesn't talk like a brain-washed red-neck on SSC? No wonder all of my friends on east or west coast always look at Indiana with pity and extreme despise.

What kind of a right wing redneck comment is that? This is looking fab by the day and looming over like a vast giant. That last shot looks especially breathtaking

Wow seeing this and the cladding is exceptional. I also have finally recognized that the rectangular hole is better than the original round hole.

i was wondering. how this building is going to be ventilated? there is no roof is going to be. i'm sure there will be no any air-conditioners on sides. looks like cladding is going to be solid...

possibly ventilating is going to be inside of the hole, but isn't there is an open bridge is planned?

You get ventilated floors every 12 levels (mechanical/refuge reinforced floors).
Openings visible on all pics with sufficent amount of cladding.

yes, on the hole at the top there will be an outdoor-observationdeck

This is an awsome building, maybe the only thing that I dislike of the project is that they change the design, but I'm getting custom with the new design. And now I do like the design, it looks pretty nice.
