Two shopping malls next to each other. Hats off to Shanghai if that works out.

Probably will to be honest, if the prices are not too expensive. They will actually have four normal shopping malls (Jin Mao, SWFC, Superbrand mall, Shanghai Tower) and one high end shopping mall (IFC). It will hopefully make the area more livable and more vibrant i guess. More food shops will benefit the workers for sure and the shopping is probably for the tourists that come to the area, just like Petronas in KL, its mainly for tourists, the workers are in the two towers.

Is there even a mall in Jinmao and SWFC? I have been to both podiums many times and I just know there is a Foodcourt in SWFC, its not really a mall.

So are "malls" what everyone goes for in Shanghai? I thought it was a cool city, like 80 years ago when it was a cool city, but hey every city needs it's flavor of the year skyscraper, in this case courtesy of Gensler, I like skyscrapers, but it annoys me when a city gets 1 or 3 or 5 trophy skyscrapers and then everyone thinks they're the shit. Great a city of 12 million finally gets a skyline.

New design? Never heard of.
Shanghai tower will be built, and it would be the shanghai twister.

Would have been nice if Oasis-Bangkok had given a source. As it is, I find it hard to believe that they would redesign the tower.

What the hell?! But hosnestly I've always thinking of the design as out of this world, extremly hard to build. Almost impossible. And thats whats makes it my favourite project worldwide. Now it seems they resing all hard bits of the desing. Greatest disappointemnt since the nakheel tower was cencelled The look of it is still quite nice, but where is second layer of glass where is twist, and the state of art crown? It is not the first time when engineers change the artis vision dramatically. If only that would be bad dream

Oasis you have made quite a fuss here, and your link includes nothing than some renders, not even a single world of statement. How you can treat this as a new desing?
