What material did they use on the exterior cladding? It makes the building look like it was photoshopped or rendered in clear lighting. Super cool!

I also think it's super cool that GZ Ifc has really dark cladding and this really bright one gives a counterweight in the skyline

Beautiful shots, guys.

The completion of this project has vaulted Guangzhou into my personal top-5 worldwide skylines. Huge, balanced and instantly recognizable.

I agree with others above. For me Guangzhou now is the best skyline in China, better than Shanghai or Hong Kong purely in terms of aesthetics. I will admit too that I was wrong about CTF. When I originally saw the renders it struck me as ugly and oppressive. I thought it would be a eyesore. However, the end product looks serene and powerful.

Spectacular downtown pics but the down-view pics from higher vantage point look always better than pics from a street level.
