The reflection of the buildings also adds to the brightness of the vertical fins rather then the reflection of the sky.



Long stripes of white terracotta extend from the tower’s base to its chiseled setbacks and top. By day, the tower’s terracotta and metal façade stands out amongst its all-glass neighbors. At night the glistening terracotta sparkles on the skyline.

Lovely update WLager!

I think the glass is coming along nicely, it is a very simple yet subtle clad with a lovely hint of blue. It should look exceptionally beautiful when fully clad and complete! The shape of the tower also fits perfectly with the cladding.

I think BozenBDJ is referring to the hole above where the podium will be constructed about a floor above that. Unless he's not, then my bad WLager,

I have to admit Guangzhou's skyline increasingly resembles that of Tokyo

Not saying it's a bad thing, in fact, it fits the tower. It's just that the renders made it look bigger.
