i saw models of this tower before, but for another plot (for CITIC Plaza, the tallest proposed tower in beijing).

your post

so was that design already planned, but we never really realized that this was another serious project?

i loved the renders a lot, but didn't want them for the tallest plot, but i think they will look amazing :)

You may like it or not. But it's positively surprising to see that the idea of a 'skyscraper' as a heigh slim building with a pointy top is slowly changing. The CCTV building is also a great example of this of course. We can clearly see now that technology is getting better and better and weirder shapes become possible
