I personally love the redesign as well.

The only thing I dislike about the cladding for now is the advertising, but hey, this will get removed (hopefully soon).
The spire would have been really nice and would improve the design in my opinion, but it also looks good how it is now and the loose of the spire is sad but manageable.
Completely agree, the gold cladding looked extremely tacky. The current color scheme is much classier and will age better.

The black cladding at the edge of the lower part of the tower, is it just an design element or has it a function?

Is that really black cladding or just a shadow from the protruding side

Its cladding the megacolumns i think. I thought that the black cladding would be covered with some type of covering to make it appear like windows. Not sure now if thats still the case?

Oh and Ping An does look glorious, congrats to all the designers and builders who worked on this masterpiece. especially the guys under the umbellas who hand dug the piles!
What a c$%t of a job that would have been!

See below for what i mean

Maybe because is closer to the photographer...

I know many whine about losing the stick on top, but this look so much better and original...
