Holy motha! That's one tall tower! How do these towers not get more attention. They're beautiful! The base is kind of plain though, is it connected to a podium?

They get plenty of attention over here in Asia (with at least half or so of the planet's population)!

Whenever I think of chinese cities, I always think of the above picture.

I love the crisscrossing outer pillars of the Guangzhou Twin Tower, I think it's going to look great.

Why does the East choose to use different green scaffolding? Is there some advantage?

^It's bamboo scaffolding. I imagine they use it because bamboo is abundant there.

Nice tower. I wonder if it's "twin" will be the same, or another design entirely.

Bamboo scaffolding is used in HK. I'm not so sure about Guangzhou.

bamboo is cheaper, lighter and more flexible in winds, and still very strong.
