Hey Forum, you got good taste when it comes to your 3 favorites you just added.

Why is there only a "piece" of cladding? maybe for troubleshooting?

IMO the black elements are only a support for the silver lamellae top cover. In post #6358 you can see that the mega columns are from top to bottom covered with the silver elements.
What I am curious to know is how they gonna install all the supporting frames around the columns?! I've seen them drilling all those holes by hand hanging down in a basket. I can't imagine them drilling those holes throughout the whole elevation like this.

Who would have thought thirty years ago that a small chinese fishing village would turn into a huge industrial megacity with some of the most badass structures on earth.
