Hi all.

Hey Sky - great work keeping us up to date with pics in here. I haven't posted in here before but I read here regularly.

This building looks fantastic. I like the Jin Mao for the complexity of its cladding with its many facets. The SWFC looks good so close to it with its long clean lines. Good contrast between the two.

I think when the SC is completed all 3 will look good together even though they will be so close to each other because they all have their own unique look.

Still looks about 99% complete and needs a wash.

It will be cleaned up for the opening ceremony. Don't worry. And once it's washed, it will be bling-bling

Well, I think you would. And also this kind of "multiple faces" approach seems to be characteristic of Mori. They also made the Roppongi towers in Tokyo that have a similar effect. Each side looks like a different tower.

It's probably rather a characteristic of KPF, then.

Of course it will. The fault lies in the thread title claiming that it is complete.

There was a program on National Geographic about the SWFC.
There is a download link here:

I hvaent seen it yet and I dont think it was completed when they filmed the program but it could still be interesting to see how it was constucted.
