when you travel by train you can often look at the landscape but have no chance to see far because of fog and that is far away from big cities, so i also think it is not all smog.

That coul still take a while. Ping-An, whish is similar in size but 100 meter ahead, still has no cladding. I hope we may see some test panels soon.

In older pictures this area looked very empty but the latest pictures show more cars in the area so I guess more people are moving in and working in this part of the city?

From my own experience, I have not seen fog very often in China -- not moreso than other places. What I have seen much more often is haze. Haze can be naturally occurring, but usually it isn't. When you go to Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and also southern China, that thin (or sometimes not so thin) layer of haze that you see everywhere is not natural. It is caused by coal burning, crop burning, vehicle emissions, etc. If you go to places like the island New Guinea, which has a similar climate as Southeast Asian countries but very little pollution, the air is generally crystal clear, though in the mornings or evenings you might see a very thin layer of haze due to the high humidity and changing temperatures.

Northern Chinese cities such as Beijing and Tianjin have another type of haze -- brown haze -- which is also manmade. It is caused mainly by dust particles from agricultural activities mixed with pollution. You can read more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asian_brown_cloud


Back on topic, I think the design for this building is excellent. Congrats, Tianjin.

Sometimes a tower that is on its own today is part of a cluster tomorrow. Don't underestimate the ability of a 117-story tower to generate all kinds of growth around it.

1% smoke and 99% fog could still be considered smog, technically
