Nice design, but the cladding looks really cold, gray and plain... Itīs really sad that the original plan with gold cladding hasnīt happened.

That part of Shenzhen reminds me of Toronto for some reason. Much more greenery, though.

Personally I thought the gold cladding was vomit-inducing and am glad they changed it. Seems you really can't please everyone.

I wouldn't call the gold version vomit inducing, but I do get his point. Gold cladding can look very tacky.

I don't subscribe on gold being necessarily tacky. I believe it could have been interesting and unusual, if implemented well. On the other hand, it could have more easily become tiring in the long term, silver is a rock-solid choice in this regard.

Given the quality of the current cladding, I'm glad they didn't choose the golden version. It would look super cheap..
Golden cladding would only look good with high quality materials.

I don't think the developers/owners mind tacky, considering that this tower will probably be lit up in 20 different colours at night...

Well, different societies have different standards as far as what's considered tacky, or what's desirable. Let's remember that Apple introduced the gold iPhone specifically for the Chinese market.

Yes, it's the same in middle eastern and caucasian societies since many of their structures are glitzy and westerners see them usually as tacky.

I really hope that the farmland gets protected from development, it makes a fantastic contrast.

I agree, but don't forget that Shenzhen already has a lot of parks.
