Now that this building is finished I'm planning to visit Shanghai too, maybe next summer. It's a great time to visit; a lot of the interesting development around the city has been completed or soon will be, like the bund, and Shanghai tower, and there's nothing really exciting to wait for anymore

Now that the building is almost fully complete...

I still have some reservations about the design, particularly how it engages at the street level and whether or not the interior functionality will live up to aspirations. As someone who is not fully enamored with organic forms in architecture, however, I will admit this result is far more appealing than I expected. It especially plays nicely alongside its neighboring supertalls, in which case the undulating form serves it well.

I do worry that it's overwhelmingly designed for 1-2 specific views and for the light show, as opposed to being designed for the overall 24/7/365 use and appeal. It's one thing to be the center of a very cool lighting effects display, another thing entirely to provide value in real estate return.

On the whole, though, I'm more pleased than anticipated and think it's a great asset to the Shanghai skyline. Well done.

At least 35 killed, 42 others injured in stampede at New Year celebrations in Shanghai.

At least 35 people have been killed and 42 others injured following a stampede during New Year celebrations in Shanghai, China. Chinese media are reporting the crush to have broken out on the Bund, a waterfront area in central Shanghai on the western side of the Huangpu river. The incident took place just minutes before midnight in the city at 23:35 local time (15:35 GMT). Local media reported that masses of crowds in Chen Yi Square on the Bund led to the stampede. Authorities are currently working to rescue the wounded who are being transferred to Shanghai General Hospital. The cause of the crush is also being investigated. Graphic images being posted on social media show both injured and dead people being tended to by emergency services. The city’s annual massive 3D laser display at the Bund was cancelled this year after authorities reported crowd control issues at the last three years of the event. Instead, smaller gatherings were planned for several locations in the city. More than 23 million people live in the city.
