Gold was the "old design". They just changed it to silver anytime.

I like the golden more too, but the silver cladding won't be bad

In my opinion silver makes the building (and the skyline) look more futuristic.

Gold is old school for me.

i still like the golden version. Silver is great but it's so "normal", many towers are sivler or blue. but such a tall tower in a slight golden color would make it even more exclusive i think

Since this is China, it's likely to be silver with gold accents.

A massive build.

I have always associated this tower with the gold colour, and that's what made it unique. If it is going to be silver, then it will pretty much be a 'normal' tower that is really tall.
Obviously, I will be better informed when the cladding actually starts going up, and hopefully it will be good cladding.

The size of the core alone is already bigger than most high rise buildings.

I have a dream...that one day the super column core of these current mega-talls will be one of the 9 squares of an even bigger super super column of 81 square core elements, in buildings that are ten kilometers in height.

Thats better, get some layering and complexity in the design. I hope the gold really stands out because one weakness I think the Shenzhen skyline has right now is all the materials and facades used in its office buildings are really starting to look the same (blues, greens, and silvers).

For more realistic dreams I dream for space elevator on earth. Meanwhile there is active project called Liftport to develop one on the moon and believe it or not if everything goes right that can be possible in 8 years I encourage you to subscribe to their youtube channel.



And sorry for being offtopic, but being huge fun of the project couldn't resist to make little advertisement for them.

So? If we build 10km high buildings, wouldn't it be logical to have homes and offices next to the windows and use the inside of the building for manufacturing or even agriculture. A city within a tower. The ultimate mixed use.

I'd rather have nukes blow up Himalayan mountains and transport them into the middle of the Pacific than an 10km high supertall if living space was ever an issue O.O

if every person in the world would live in a city with manhattan's density, we whole population will fit into an area the size of texas, so we really do not need to remove mountains to get space, we have a lot areas that are still empty it is just that people all do want to live in urban areas for many reasons and therefor they don't have space issues.

Everyone does not want to live in an urban area.
