"Contrary to popular myth, skyscrapers do not need to bear on bedrock. They do require a foundation system that distributes their weight to the soil below and can resist the upward pull from high winds. Shanghai's waterlogged soil has little bearing capacity, so an economical construction method is friction piles, which support gravity loads, resist wind loads, and gain additional capacity from resting on the stiff sand below."


The drawing above shows the foundation system.

My question is what happens if the local climate changes, or the river's water level goes up or down? If the soil consistency changes, could that harm the tall building's foundations?

These changes (if any) would be very slow and I'm sure they are compensated for in the design.

Amazing White Mangolia! But no cladding on the other tower? Any news about it? It topped out long time ago!
