No sane person would shove this ugly monster in middle of world class glassy skyscrapers.
It would look a lot better if they kept the base, but re-clad the tower with a smooth stone and glass fašade such as this one.

But its got like stone pillars forming as the outer layer of the building. They should just remove the stone pillars and then its all glassy inside.

indeed those pillars look terrible, although the base does not look too bad.

We've just had a load of fabulous pictures from one of the most interesting construction projects you could wish to see, yet people are still going on about that ugly building in Shanghai
Who cares, just let's have some more pictures from here, it's so fascinating.

It's interesting to see those photos - especially since I've walked past the site, but never managed to get inside to see what's going on

it doesn't make sense to me cause why not they just digging the bottom of the ground instantly instead of digging the small holes? doesn't the order of digging the hole has been reversed that just making more complicated cause they could have had done this job eariler than expected.

Hi all.

Great update.
Looks like a beach party with all the umbrellas ...

We can no longer see the bottom of the pile holes and they're still digging by the looks of it.
The netting over the holes (for protection from falling objects I reckon) seems to be just enough to satisfy a regulation - seems to be placed haphazardly .... ?
I see some digging being done between the piles and under the podium area.
- Under the podium for level B5 that is in the drawings ?
- Between the piles for level B5 and a big slab under that ?
It would seem like a strange methodology to do the lowest basement level this way but it would be par for the course on this project.


Ray.

Thanks for the pics. So there is no digging down as It seemed from the last pics. Apparently they just were preparing for additional four mega-piles holes. I guess they starting with them only now because center holes are done, or almost done. Other than that lots of circular rebars on the site. Wonder if all of them goes to the concrete rings, or maybe they starting filling the holes with actual reinforcement for the mega-piles?
