The lanterns go around the perimeter of the roof.

One section is still unadorned, though given that it’s still October, it could just mean decorations haven’t been installed yet.

Moving around the building, the lanterns are on both tiers, giving it a nice layered effect that should look great at night.

More crane figures are just to the right of the entrance.
