I'm torn between 2,9,10, and 13. But since 10 will be 600m tall...I'll go with that one.

By the way this competition has generated some amazing proposals and hope they will be built elsewhere as well. I hate to see some of these designs go to waste.

Yes, its one of the three proposals that they elected. But i think its quite cool actually, though its a bit too massive.

3 Was not the winner????
No, the winner was proposal 11 as far as i know, but proposal 3 was one of the three finalists which was proposal 11, proposal 3 and proposal 4.

But im afraid it has been reduced in height, the winning design is supose to be 450 meter, so perhaps its proposal 2 who won.

I voted for 11 because it has a strong nationalistic pride to it but below are the GOOD ones:

#1 Very Tall, but has a plain design
#2 Love the fully glass ball observation deck
#3 The lush green colour adds to the tower's presentation
#4 The climate levels plan is attractive and the shape is amazing too
#10 Colour Scheme is excellent and design is stunning because it resembles a lotus flower
#11 The Golden colour expresses Guangzhou's position as China's Southern Capital and the golden corridor gives more attraction to just only the tower. The nighttime colours are stunning when compared to the daytime colours. Also, the golden colour and the red is blended into somewhat of the national identity.

Proposal 4 or proposal 11.

proposal 4 is the winner, not proposal 11
How do you know? Of what i've heard the winning design was 600 meter tall, but it has been reduced in height to 450 meters. However, proposal 4 is 450 meter, so it might be that one to.
