Guiyang, capital of Guizhou province, China

According to Emporis the tallest building in Guiyang is 106m and it was built in 1988 .. I think some of these buildings are higher and newer than that ...

Panda, you'd better sign your application at emporis and improve its database instead of posting sarcastic messages here

Taiyuan, capital of Shanxi province, China

If anybody knows when these buildings where completed please let us know all ... I think at least some of them are very recent.

Taiyuan World Trade Center ... reminds me of NYWTC

Shanghai 2004

The building on the right (with the red ribbon) has just been completed. It is really not beautiful .. but kind of intriguing ..

I believe all these buildings have been completed this year. Please correct me if I am wrong and I will remove them from the forum.


This one is in the Xujiahui Square area and it is just completed.

The building in the back, on the right is an awsome one. Sorry this pic is centered on the Science and Technology museum but I coundn't find any better .. I think this scraper would be a good candidate. If anybody have a better pic please post it.

hi, Panda, please be serious. if you are not sure the completion date, then do not hurry to post. Besides, most of the buildings you posted are far from being eligible to be nominated.
The Taiyuan world trade center is nice, though.

Best new skyscraper of 2004 ???

I am sorry guys .. I mistakenly thought that this forum is for the Best new skyscraper of 2004 in the World .. So, I posted a couple of handsome new buildings from China. I did not know that the forum is reserved to American and European (especially British) highrises.

It is for the best new skyscraper of 2004 in the world. In this thread however, you just post your 3 nominations, not display what was built in 2004.

Hope that clears up the confusion.

The taichung tower looks quite good for a chinese tower, unusually understated!

I was forced to flip a coin to decide between #1 and #2.

1. Swiss Re
2. Time Warner center
3. Taipei 101 (it's tall, at least)
