It's hard to say this project isn't beautiful, I'm just astounded how MASSIVE this thing is, the photos above, normal humans look incredibly minisule.

it is a weird thing to say, but that it is lines and not 'X'es on the sides bothers me a bit, since the design is perfectly suited for a building that has 4 identical faces, but this makes the faces mirrored towards the other next to it instead of being symmetrical to both sides. on the renders it looks like the 'X'es on the base and the symmetrical lines on the edges of the building are the only ones seen though, so this little thing bothering me may be obsolete once the cladding is on and even if it doesn't disappear completely it is just a slight imperfection on a beauty with few rivals.

Gouwugongyuan, or 'Shopping Park' - on the green line, one stop west of Convention and Exhibition center.

Thank you. Seen it today but in the dark. It was quite smoggy so my pics didn't come out nice. Still, I'll upload them when I'm back to Russia.

Nobody knows. We thought they would start already in december. But except a small piece of test cladding nothing happened. So maybe this month or next month. At least i hope it.

I haven't seen any progress on the brackets and frasmes for the cladding either.

So for now it's the largest building on the planet without facade.
