There are some cool supertall-with-huge-mountains pictures in the Costanera Center thread.

Yes, it seems to be moving onshore as we speak. I hope nobody gets hurt there.

As long as nobody gets hurt and nothing damaged on site it should be no problem

I put Ping An near Mount Cook village (the actual village is behind the hill on the far right). Mount Cook towers 3km over that flat area! Somehow these comparisons have made this building seem massive yet pathetic! Actually, building tall towers beside huge mountains would be quite cool! Both photos taken by me, the Ping An render is from the first page
Thank you thank you! I love seeing skyscrapers in other places to really see the idea of scale, can you please make more but in other locations (maybe London)

And can some creative person please start a thread for this, "skyscrapers in other environments"

It is over land right now so it should weaken quickly.

This is the point at which all of the downward forces on the supercolumns change direction from vertical to slightly splayed outwards, it has to be incredibly strong there to resist the sideways forces resulting from that.
