Yea, Jin Mao is the best in the cluster, shanghai tower is really nice but not the same as jin mao. It's too bad that such a great design looks like a filler.... oh well, I guess that's just progress.

Why not build bridges to Pudong?

Starting on the left with Jin Mao tower. This is late 90s/new millennium style that has echoes to towers from the Petronas Twin Towers to the Taipei 101. An ornamented, baroque design derived from local symbols and ideas. I might add the Tuntex tower in Gaoxiong, but it doesn't quite have the same stylistic patterns.

In the middle with the Shanghai WFC. A new millennium style that looks to geometry for inspiration. Other examples that come to mind are 2 IFC and ICC from Hong Kong and maybe the Trade Tower in Incheon. These are simply designed with little ornamentation and revolve around a singular shape.

On the right and the Shanghai Tower shows the current style with graceful curves instead of rigid lines. Shenzhen's KK100, Guangzhou's IFC, Jinan's Greenland Puli Center (perhaps too curvy, or at least for my taste) and Suzhou's Gate of the Orient spring to mind. These are the buildings that I remember from my childhood in science books that talk about the future.

What do you think? I know structures outside this region go for different styles (The Shard, Moscow's Int'l Business Park, Abraj al-Bait, etc.) but within this region, anyone else see this?

They certainly seem to represent 90s, 00s and 10s architecture quite well, respectively.

Yes. I think this was the idea behind the three towers, to represent three different types of how to build buildings and also reflect this in their architecture.


Jin Mao is build like the skyscrapers in the past century, with steel. The Style is Postmodernism, Art Déco Inspired.
SWFC stands for the present, build with concrete. Slim and sharp designed.
And Shanghai Tower is for the future, organic shape and environmentel friendly build, with it's double layered facade, windturbines and water collector at the top.
