Looks like it needs to be cleaned. Nice bridge though. I'm not sure why but when I see this CTF building I keep thinking of Hong Kong, looks like a Hong Kong building to me which doesn't really make sense saying it out loud or typing it, maybe it's the vibe I get from it. With that said it looks great in Guangzhou. It's one of the cities I'd want to live in if I had to move to China.

Everything in China probably has a layer of grime on it. You can't have that much soot in the air and not expect it to settle on things.

I love the architecture and yes, that bridge needs a good clean up.

I kind of get the Hong Kong vibe. Really tall, boxy (more just unrelentingly vertical and straight than boxy), no spire. The density of the surrounding area adds to the impression I'm sure

It's not to far from Hong Kong so I am assuming they share many cultures and would want similar buildings.

It needs more than a clean up... it's bloody hideous

Something a bit more traditional would have looked far better against that skyline.

Chinese megacities are for the future, they don't need any pretension to the past

I agree, although I would love to see traditionally inspired buildings like taipei 101 and jin mao here and there in the skylines

I agree Wally, (I wouldn't go with bloody hideous) ,,,hopefully they will in the future, this isn't Hong Kong, or Shanghai for that manner..
