Cladding looks awesome? Just massive pre-fabricated sheets? Of Glass and Pane?

All the other towers look tiny compared to this monster.

I think they should build the south tower a bit taller. In the renders, it doesn't attract attention in the skyline.
Maybe it should be around 375-400m tall

Neither of the toweres rising from the mall in the second render looks anything like the towers in the first render...

Looks good enough, makes Ping An all the more massive. It'll stick out like no other building.

But Ping An would fit in better, if it had a ''partner''.

Chinese cities are stereotypically futuristic.
