Also noteworthy for the fact that the sculptor is accused of plagiarism on it.

Hmm... buildings in a circle... doesn't look too original to me anyway. So the actual work is what counts, and the Shenzhen one is much better in my view...

It would have looked cool if it was a mobius strip rather than a ring.

The floors will no longer slant, but the columns will. Those will turn straight probably 8 floors above this mech floor. It's a strange design...

This render shows what I'm talking about:

I was freaking out that my geography was really bad, and that someone would tell me Shenzhen and Guangzhou were actually right next to each other.
