I'm going to have to find a way to get to Thailand and see it in person!

It is a 6-meter cantilevered glass floor serves as the observation deck. The beam is made from steel but the joist (sub-beam) and floor slab will be made of glass.

This thing was added after as PACE Development would like to have something attractive. Bouygues and their team has just done the redesign work recently and that's why the very top floors took so long to finished.

Now the structural work is 100%

The more light it's in, the better the design shows off.

In darker, more shadowy shots or cloudy days the imagination plays tricks...almost looking like a building partially destroyed by terrorists.

Hi all,

I am trying to make a paper model template of the tower using the photos here as reference. Since the actual plans are not available (unlike warships modeling), all I did was approximating the dimensions by counting the individual glass, but it won't be accurate.. I tried measuring the tower in Google Maps, but the satelite image is so blurred and incomplete. So, if anyone knows the dimentions of the tower and base, I would be very, very appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Main tower is 40m x 40m. Panels are spaced at 1.8m.

Thank you very, very much!
How did you get that information? That is a big help

Still, I really need the pixelated floors plans, in order to make correct pixelated fašades, but I am not sure anyone will have those...
I tried looking thoroughly at dozens of photos to replicate the pixels, but it took me really long just to create the outline, not to mention the incomplete top floors...

Or, straightforwardly, does anybody has/know where to find the whole construction plans for the tower?

Thank you again.

that cantilever is scary, won't be coming anywhere close to that :p
the building itself looks brilliant, very unique design that seems to work well in real life and not just on the renders
