I must say in most renders I've seen the IFC has looked kinda out of place, but in this one it actually looked quite good.

non scientific
Is easy to imagine: Tree is made out of wood, wood contain a lot of carbon. so a ~10,000 kg tree, absorbed more than 5,000 kg Carbon in it's life. so more than 5,000 kg of gasoline...

Molecular formula for gas: C8H18 + O2 => CO2 + H2O + energy

the trees make the reaction in reverse...

CO2 + H2O + energy (from the sun, photosynthesis) => wood(leaves, fruits) + O2

something like that anyway...

Wow! That looks awesome. Finally a render with the comleted SWFC.
Can't wait to see this one rising. It makes the Jin Mao look small!

Shanghai is bound to have the most dynamic and modern skyline in the world with such developments! the IFC, Jin Mao, SWFC and the ST are a match made in heaven. I feel as if there is a ratio between the short and the next tallest when it comes to the difference in height.
