Typhoon Kalmaegi Hits Shanghai Tower

Previously posted on Flickr:http://https://www.flickr.com/people/[email protected]



While Typhoon Kalmaegi causes havoc across China, watch as Chief Architect Marshall Strabala gives visitors a tour of Shanghai Tower's 120th-floor observatory level -- before the building's windows have been installed.

Filmmaker Nicky Almasy shot a captivating 8-minute video, from which these screenshots were made. Check out the YouTube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7fnzMJMYfc

Did you know that the Shanghai Tower's radical shape was selected so that it could easily handle winds of up to 114 miles per hour? As you may know, a principle in modern architecture is "form follows function." So it has!

^Given the mass of boats and the likely busy riverfront on the other side, a place where lots of people travel, I'd say the signs are advertising billboards.

Or maybe it's Chinese for "Dude, you wouldn't believe how this place will look in 25 years if we told you".

If that was in NYC it would be 6 billion.
