See how much this city has changed over a little bit more than 20 years, photo taken in 1993, impressive!

Here are shots of the metal grid behind the crown cladding. This should fix the transparency issue from street level

I was recently in a stage show, and those things in the clear orbs on the crown look exactly like the moving lights that we used for the show!

The #shanghai #tower under construction at the moment. It seems smaller than the two other buildings but it's the #second #tallest #building in the #world at the moment; 632 metres. #skyscraper #architecture changing #landscape #pudong #progress changing
