Marshall Strabala, Chief Architect of Shanghai Tower, was interviewed on CNN's "Newsroom" program about his design of this, China's tallest building and the world's second tallest building, slated to open this summer. Strabala, who created the winning design for the 632-meter Tower, said that he expects the structure to be a business success. Working for the owner and developer, Shanghai Tower Construction and Development Co., Ltd., Strabala directs all design and engineering work on the building, including work of outside contractors.

First broadcast on May 17, 2015, the CNN video can seen at:http://www.cnn.com/videos/world/2015...t-building.cnn

Very brave tower project, also because it's not topped by "safer" spire, but by original crown, also with public access

That's the construction hoarding you realise right? The street level is still being built.

Shanghai is really one of the cities proving that skyscrapers can be/look friendly for people and needn't be inhumane

The way this building meets and engages with the street is an embarrassment. The tower is elegant but the base is just awful! No elegance, no style merit, no practical offering to the street, just very, very poor.

It's fine having stunning views from afar (and to afar) but if you don't get it right at street level it's a just one big failure! Shame
