Can't believe, just can't believe they are actually building that. My new favorite skyscraper, it seems.

the details have been launched!

http://www.gensler.com/#home/0

please select page 7for the video!

Sited in the Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone of Pudong, Shanghai Tower completes a trio of buildings that form China’s first super-tall district. While the adjacent Jin Mao Tower pays homage to China’s past, and the Shanghai World Financial Center signifies China’s recent economic success, Shanghai Tower represents the boundless possibilities of China’s future, the building’s shape a metaphor for the country’s connection with the world, space and time.

“This tower is symbolic of a nation whose future is filled with limitless opportunities,” said Qingwei Kong, president of the Shanghai Tower Construction & Development Co., Ltd.

Love the double skin courtain, It will save a lot of air conditioning energy.



The building will also have a 54 wind turbines, and a rainwater colector roof...

Marvelous tower this one will be. I admire the construction planning that this part of Shanghai has. So much space, nowhere can you see cramped buildings. Really intelligent planning.

I've been saying for years how futuristic this area of Shanghai looks and after watching and listening to the video that Staff posted I just have to say again that I kept expecting to see Starfleet HQ or the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise to be somewhere in a shot.....not to mention the musical score. Any idea who composed it?
