I'm not sure what the name of it is and I apologize this is a bit off topic but that night shot of shanghai century plazza with that round thing and the pin through it, does it have a name and does it have some sort of ride inside of it at all? Very curious piece of art and I hope it has some sort of significance.

Well.. as I said.. they'll most likely just move the two that they've got, because as it is at the moment, they won't be able to climb through a hole!

And when they're on the outer of the building like that.. with a hole, they'll only be able to brace them to the building to a certain level, then they'll be swaying.. here.. (OZ) you can go about 12-14 sections without bracing..

Having them on one side is easier to install and take down.. one will do that, the other will come down by a smaller recovery crane.. Also with the hole, they, might actually build part of that above the cab height of the crane..

Wrong color, totally agree. They shoud have chosen a much darker blue, light silver or dark bronze, etc. Anyway current color isn't too bad.
