What's inside that pyramid on the top? It would be a great place to meditate!

It's filled with frameworks and perhaps a kind of light installation without much space to fell comfortable. But the idea is great, meditation in the sky

I doubt that... more likely is taken from somewhere in Shenzhen on the way to land at Bao'an International.

This is from standing on top of the "lower" pyramid looking up to the bottom of the "upper" diamond, the reflections are of the city below.

For the first second watching I thought that the picture of Houhai would be Hong Kong. I love how fast the Skyline of Shenzhen improves, everytime I see a new picture of the city some new skyscraper got lit up.

So whats the true height, CTBUH is 599m, KPF website is 600m, Gaoloumi is 592. And also where did the height 599 come from anyway?

I would go with 592m.

I read somewhere before, CTBUH explained their own method of measurement to arrive at their number. Can't recall the details unfortunately.

On gaoloumi they used this follow diagram provided by the construction firm:

(sorry for huge pic)
