i dont think the design will affect the whole pudong area anyway, you won't be able to see as a whole skyline..
I think this would be terrible in most parts of Shanghai, but in a car oriented, pedestrian unfriendly area like Pudong it might work.

Looks like the best design yet. Looks amazing and is a great complament to JinMao and SWFC as its a different design and way taller, making it look like the 'parent' with two kids lol.

That is quite the monster, but look carefully and you'll realise that SWFC looks only marginally taller than Jin Mao on the first and last picture.

I don't think that's a new proposal, just new renders...

Isn't it the same as this?

sbz2ifc.. that is not the same render...

look at the crown... the top..

the 'old' design was round.. with a little 'notch' at the top which would make the lit top visible from the ground...

the new design does not show that..

also, the 'old' design was round... with a slice up the side..
the new design is flatter...twisting..

close, but not the same..

'new' or 'old', they both look great

This is great. I voted for Gensler, and this new render is so similar to that project, plus is very tall, and its shape is harmonic with the other two (square, polygon, circle). GO FOR IT!

That's clearly the best design. Looks a bit too tall in some of those renders though

That's Gensler proposal. The renders posted by kix111 looks like a larger version of KPF proposal I think:
