I have long been proud to be Chinese. I feel it more as my beloved nation is striding fast towards modernisation.

and, why Shanghai is the second most booming city in the world as the subject suggests?

The projects are amazing!IMO most Dubai towers are very bland and boring, with few exceptions, but these all look so... futuristic!

Hey guys.
Shanghai is great, Dubai is no less than that.
No need to fight on this. We are all developing ourselves to make our lives better. Good for both!!
Best wishes for all of you from Beijingers!

I don't wanna start a flamewar in this eminent thread, but "Krazy" is starting it with a irrelevant smiley-face.

dubaiflo,
There are two skyscrapers u/c in Dubai that I find attractive - the Turning Torso rip-off and the Citigroup Centre (NYC) rip-off - out of hundreds of towers. Now, that's of course my opinion, but the only ones that don't seem to agree are the Dubai cheerleaders on these forums.

I'm actually amazed by the fact that a city that simply pumps oil-money into the construction of hundreds of towers in a desert, isn't able to come up with anything better than that.
But hell, let's not get into that discussion - especially not in this thread.
Why compare Shanghai and Dubai anyway? They're so different it's rediculous.

Cool projects! The areas of Pudong and Puxi is actually being filled up! Less empty spaces between huge towers.

uh, the dubai cheerleaders.

yeah, people who like more than two Dubai Towers, and i bet there are 10000 in this forum, are all Dubai Cheerleaders.

Sorry but which one is a rip off of the citigroup centre..to me it is rather a Box with blue facade, i could think of 20 towers in dubai which have those features.
but anyway, you were saying... 'surely NO ONE could say Dubai...
and this is , surely, wrong.

the point is, if anyone would make a compilation of Dubai's futuristic towers, we would have roughly the same thread.

anyway...

let us leave it here.

------------


I think these towers are rather awesome.

of course SWFC is one of a kind.

same goes for Jasper Tower.


But on the other hand, i can see some rather boring designs that lack of detail, like this one here:




on the other hand, some are overdone:

Yep, Shanghai vs. Dubai is ridiculous. So lets focus on the amazing projects in Shanghai now, and not compare it to Dubai.

Amazing projects anyway, and i have a few more proposels and renderings to share!

More about:
Lujiazui Financial Centre




Pudong Hotel


Shanghai Shidong Power Headquarters (19 stories)






More about:
International Cruise Terminal / North Bund International Cruice Terminal

Architect: John Portman & Associates

This approximately 5,112,857 square foot (475,000 square meter) development is designed to fit into the overall urban fabric and, at the same time, be distinct. The Center Tower is the dominant structure on the site and, as such, sets the tone for the rest of the development. Reaching 1053 feet (321 meters) into the sky, the tower gracefully twists to create a form that is evocative in profile of the fortuitous number 8.

Its confident presence on the Shanghai skyline will be attractive to tourists and inspiring to residents. The twist is also indicative of a change of function within the building. The upper portion holds a hotel, while the lower part contains offices. Two smaller towers, both rectilinear in form, complement each other and harmonize with the center tower. One features prime office space, while the other offers serviced apartments.



Hualian Mall

Map was invited into a limited competition to prepare designs for a site known as Five Ways north west of the Bund in Shanghai. The area is well served by public transport and there is a planned underground railway system with a station right under the intersection. The site is long and narrow with the station and intersection at the southern end. A main arterial road runs down the long eastern side of the site.

MAP proposed a curtain wall building with a linear atrium space with escalators climbing through the floor levels. The retail brief asked for the provision of seven levels of retail accommodation and a cinema complex and other entertainment uses at level 8 to 10. One level of basement was proposed to contain a supermarket and interface with car parking at the rest of the basement one level and into basement 2.







Wai Tan 2 Hotel

MAP was asked by Henderson Land to prepare designs for a Hotel on a site that runs from the Shanghai Club Building 2 Waitan through to the main street at the rear of the Bund. The building next door has been renovated and contains the Georgio Armani store as well as other top European brands.

TThe brief was to design a 400 room boutique hotel. MAP suggested that the new tower be located on the back of the site and the Shanghai Club building facing the bund be renovated to a high standard. The Shanghai Club building will contain function and ball rooms, romantic old style hotel rooms with fire places and the ground floor level is to accommodate European brand name retailers.

At the rear of the old building the proposal included a glass roofed atrium space for an outdoor restaurant and winter garden.

Yup let's leave it at that.
I know I'm always posting in dubai threads but I do prefer this collection of towers over say, dubai's best 10.

If this gets built btw
I don't really like the other proposal for the same plot though

@Qazaq, do you know where is the Pudong Hotel project located? I have seen that render for many years, are you sure that it is not a stale proposal for Gran Meliá Hotel?

hm, not sure actually. I found that render last year and posted it in the Shanghai construction thread in the China Forum as you might know. I might have seen it in a chinese page, and translated it on a webtranslator into Pudong Hotel. The hotel will have 700 rooms by the way. I will see if i can find the source of the image.

And Also, the beauty of Shanghai's project cannot be compared with Dubai's ones either. Most of Dubai's prjects look "commie blocks" for me.

dubaiflo,
Naturally that's a compliment to TT:s architecture as well - but a less obvious one, and definately a much better one.
You keep on "slepping" because we said we were gonna forget this discussion...
