Cool contrast in the last photo there. The small building is being overwhelmed by those skyscrapers. I guess it won't be long before it get demolished?

Any function to the folds?

I have gone through this whole thread to see whether the diagonal folds have large cross braces behind them for lateral resistance to wind and earthquake forces. Does anyone know? This is hard to figure out with the tower rising clad in green netting. Thanks.

There doesn't appear to be a 30 metre (almost 100 ft) difference between the heights of the two tallest towers.
Are the final heights still 280m and 250m or has there been a change?
