Very futuristic.

It somehow reminds me of the Beijing Water Cube.

It reminds me of a 21st-century version of the Alcoa Building in Pittsburgh - metal companies are all the same.

It is like a different variation of Aqua tower currently being constructed in Chicago. A unique way to create a wave effect on the facade. I like it!

That's the first thing I thought of as well. Nonetheless, it looks quite interesting.

Thats a really clever design, but is the roof actually going to be covered like in the rendering?

That's a little scary.


But nonetheless, this building looks fantastic.

Does anyone know if the facade is structural?

^As in a sort of exo-skeleton? Dunno. Doesn't seem to look that way.

This is a very strong design. Tianjin is getting some fine skyscrapers, though that 1800 + ft tower is not that great in the renderings at least, IMO.

It's awesome, although the interiors look kinda space-pod-y, thus sort of dated... they'll have to handle those very carefully.

i thought of that building when i saw this too, anyways, there's a mega-thread over at SSC that covers all the buildings surrounding this, and they have pics of the construction, but i can't tell whether this one in particular is U/C
