god i love shanghai. i need to get out of lingxi, hah. i think the three buildings will look great next to one another. it will represent a timeline of chinese supertall architecture of the past 20 years or so. jinmao gets its inspiration from the form of a pagoda. thats what i like to think of it as. (and by the way, the cloud 9 bar on the 88th floor has some of the sweetest views of the city, esp at night when all the lights are on.) the swfc is a sleek financial symbol of power and money. the shanghai tower is the future. the oriental pearl tower is whatever. shanghai residents love it, its their symbol. i only wish that we would have this spectacular skyline in time for the expo.

I have been trying to take pictures of Shanghai lately, but the weather here has been shit lately. Don't worry, I lost/quit my job (yes the one in Jin Mao) and I don't start my new job (not in Jin Mao) until the last week of Aug, so I have a ton of free time. Once the weather clears up, I will make my way out there to take pics of the site. Any requests of what you want me to take a picture of? or are street shots and standard 56th floor of Jin Mao shots ok?

Sorry to hear about the job change [unbless it's a really good one]. I would love to see pics of those existing cement walls [the ones that were there before piling was finished]. We had a pretty good debate about whether they would be used for the structure or not. I don't know if you can tell now, but they looked to me like they were previously there and had not been demo'd yet.

Good luck with the new job and thanks for the pics!!

Probably they will stop working for a few days. Typhoon Morakot is hitting Shanghai too:

Quote:
SHANGHAI is expected to feel the main impact of Typhoon Morakot today and tomorrow with torrential rain and strong winds forecast as the city prepares for emergency responses.
Morakot will dump rain ranging from 60 to 90 millimeters per hour in most parts of the city, rising to an incredible 150 millimeters per hour in some southern areas, according to Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.
Wind speeds are expected to hover around 74 kilometers per hour in downtown areas and may even reach 117km/h around Yangshan Deep-Water Port.
Surges of about 4.5 meters high are predicted on coastal seas today.
The level of Huangpu River continued to rise yesterday, exceeding warning lines along with the rivers and creeks in Qingpu, Jinshan and Songjiang districts due to the fifth tide of the flood season this year, according to Shanghai Water Affairs Bureau.
The bureau has sluiced 160 million cubic meters of water and lowered river and creek levels by 30 to 40 centimeters since Friday.
The bureau has set up seven teams to beef up the deliveries of anti-flood material and patrol potential flood areas.
More operators have been added to the 110 emergency telephone system and there will be police officers on standby at every district police bureau during the typhoon period, according to Shanghai police.
Expo sites are being monitored around the clock and the drainage system, floodwalls and pumps have all been thoroughly checked.
More than 100 ships had been affected, either canceling or postponing their trips, local port immigration authorities said last night.
Twenty ocean freighters at Waigaoqiao Port had canceled departures since 2pm on Saturday.
Wusong Port said nearly 40 overseas ships had canceled or delayed departures or docking since Thursday.
Climber quizzed
More ships will be affected as winds strengthen and seas become rougher, according to immigration police.
Local ports have stepped up police presence to prepare for emergencies.
Maritime authorities are questioning a man who was nearly drowned by rising tides after climbing a shipping marker at the mouth of the Yangtze River yesterday.
The 30-year-old tourist from Guangdong Province was rescued with the help of four maritime patrol boats.
He stepped onto the 15-meter marker when sightseeing alone in heavy wind.
As of yesterday afternoon, air traffic at the two local airports remained unaffected, according to airport immigration authorities.

I wish them well with dealing with the Typhoon, mother nature sure has the final word. This tower is going to be incredible... looking forward to seeing some more progress.

So they are still working even with the incoming Typhoon? I don't know what to say. It's either I am amazed or dismayed. They better be careful or else somebody will be two meters below the ground.

I guess it's pretty sad in terms of workers' conditions.

I'm pretty sure most of the workers want to work more, to earn more money; I watched a documentary a while ago about Chongqing development and the workers building a tunnel said that their job was good because they can earn money every day, even when the weather is bad. Anyway it's a tropical depression now, it won't be much bigger than a regular rainstorm so I don't think it poses any threat to the workers

There is just so much activity in this one shot...

Hope all the workers will be fine and there are no real serious problems for anyone during this Typhoon.

Beside the workers, could the actual construction so far be damaged by the typhoon?
