I started using Chrome right around the time I started coming(summer 2011) to SSC. After a week, I kept asking myself, why didn't I use this earlier. IMO, that Chrome never crashes on me, unlike IE, where I would have to reload about 2 times per session and lose half the pages I was viewing. I even went out and bought a brand new laptop thinking that was the problem but it was IE all along. It's also nice to be able to go anywhere in the world, on any computer, log into chrome via Google and have all my favorites right there on the screen. Along with Google Drive, my entire Laptop can be at my fingertips. Oh, and the built in translator is great. I no longer travel with my Laptop now as long as I know there will be a computer to use at my destination. Talk about speeding up your Airport times

Why is the core so much higher than the floors?

Unlike 1WTC, most buildings run on a schedule where the core is the peak of a building throughout the construction process.

ST core is 580 m. high from ground zero. It changes its shape after 250 meters high.
Here core T/O is around 550 m., if I'm not mistaken.
When will change the shape?

ops

I found this video!

This is a sculpture near Shenzhen North Railway station. It's really interesting that they built a sculpture which includes buildings that are not even built yet. There is never a 100% certainty that it won't be put on hold or something. Just an indication on how ambitious the people responsible for development in Shenzhen are.
