Excellent! The world needs more skyscrapers designed like circuit boards. When will we get one in the USA?

The 8th tallest building in Guangzhou hasn't been under close scrutiny so far.
It's nice to have some info about it. Thanks !

I like the simpler, revised version better. The circuit board design is an interesting design, but it relies solely upon a gimmick, which in my opinion would not age well, and look outdated very quickly. It's like getting a sleeve tattoos while drunk one weekend: it seems like the coolest idea at the time, until you start to slow down your partying days, and you want to appear more responsible in a job interview.
