luci203 and Eroha, thanks a lot for the renders !

I'm glad the area won't be empty, however I'd prefer much higher buildings there (I hope the plans will change)...

Dude, I'm pretty sure you should contact the original photographer and not steal his photo and erase his signature for your means. especially for commercial use like this.

TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE SHANGHAI TOWER

1. What is the greatest environmental threat that the Shanghai Tower faces?

A: fire

B: earthquake

C: wind

D: people carrying smartphones on selfie sticks inside the building

E: none of the above
[/COLOR]


ANSWER:

If you answered, "C", "the wind", you are correct! CONGRATULATIONS! Bet a lot of you guessed "B," earthquake. According to Marshall Stabala, Chief Architect of Shanghai Tower, high winds are the greatest environmental factor impacting the building. That is precisely why the building has the unique cylindrical shape to help drive the wind up and away from the building, and withstand Shanghai's highest winds.


On a related topic, discover how the Shanghai Tower is actually designed to move with the wind and elements in Mr. Strabala's presentation given in Seoul at the CTBUH Conference, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCGaz_d0ilA

Actually a skyscraper like this is the safest place to be during an earthquake.

Yes, you're right. And just like earthquakes the wind isn't a threat because the building has been designed to reduce wind forces and resist high speeds.

With or without global warming, Shanghai is at risk of sinking because of aquifer depletion. Global warming only accentuates the problem because of rising sea levels. Anyone ever watch Spielberg's A.I.? Shanghai will look like New York in that movie.
