I am guessing encased in concrete, otherwise they look really thin to hold the whole tower. But I am no specialist.

It all looks very similar to shanghai tower so I would say for 99% it will be encased in concrete. Besides all cores in modern towers are at least partially concrete so there is no reason here things should be different.

ArchDaily with a article on Ping An Finance Center

Ping An Finance Center / KPF
http://www.archdaily.com/259188/ping...ce-center-kpf/

Soon to be Shenzhen’s tallest tower at 660 meters, the Ping An Finance Center by KPF will anchor the city’s new Central Business District.
Positioned at the southwest corner of the intersection of Yi Tian Road and Fu Hua Road in the Futian District, the tower will connect with
neighboring properties in addition to Shenzhen Line 1 Gou Wu Gong Yuan metro station.

Rising 115 floors above grade the PAFC punctures the sky with an impressive spire that is reminiscent of iconic spired towers such as the Chrysler
Building and Empire State Building. Perched atop a podium housing retail and conference programming, the retail shops will form a terrace that
gradually slopes away from the tower forming a large amphitheater-like space – intended to serve as a catalyst for the developing CBD.

The façade system incorporates a complementary language of light colored stone and glazing. Chevron-shaped stone panels sheath the vertical
superstructure and highlight the perimeter columns that feature eight-story diagonal braces. The subtle expression of the structural culminates at
the spire where the superstructure merges into one visual element meeting the sky.

Structurally, the tower has been engineered with a composite concrete core with steel outriggers anchoring the eight super-columns. Seven
double layer belt trusses located at mechanical and refuge floors comprise the exterior in conjunction with the super diagonals at the corners of
the tower. The eleven floors of the podium are constructed in a typical steel frame method. Nonlinear dynamic time history seismic analysis
performed by structural engineers Thornton Thomasetti played a critical role in the performance-based structural design of the tower.

Under construction since 2010, the Ping An Finance Center is scheduled for completion in 2015.

if they pour concrete around the steel walls how will it stay flat against it or will the pour go all around the circle like where the crane is ?

Love the latest shots. Just something about how graceful this tower's form is has me loving it. Still personally wished they kept the cladding gold and blue but otherwise everything looks great!
