Is the foundation poured directly on bedrock,
or are the pilings there but don't show up in the pictures?
How is the foundation attached to the bedrock?

Why does not the lower seccion of the tower have the same proportion (height) as the rest seccions? Do you think it looks better when it is shorter?

This one looks really special. It's almost frighteningly thin as compared to its height.

There should not be any problem with this project as long as Mr. Goenka is free...

Don't bother with such technical questions There are no pilings done that's for sure (from what it's shown on the thread) ,they will pour the foundation directly on the bedrock at least that is what the pictures show. (pretty odd if you ask me but it's doable)
