Shanghai will be in the premier league once this is up. This render allows me to get to grips with how it will fit in.

The render Turbosnail posted shows the SWFC parking lot turned into a small park like it's intended to be. I hope that happens some time soon-ish.

The tower is divided into several sections, with the glass curtain connecting to the actual building at the divisions. Think of the facade of the building as only a 15 or so story glass facade being suspended. The facade also connects to the building a couple of times between the divisions.

More like the engineers who have to come up with ways of making the architect's vision into reality are genius.

THANK YOU!!!!

Like everywhere in professional life, engineers do all the work, late hours, including Saturday and Sundays, while stupid Business, marketing, and management people get all credits and all money. Ah, and architects, too, like you say. And if some business concept or pruduct fails, who is always blamed and fired first??? Exactly!

Wait, so you want to say that you're more important than the guy who designed the building, architect, just by calculating things ?
