"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"

These 3 buildings ARE the shit ! They would grace any city anywhere, your post smacks of jealousy to be honest.

Second That!
Jin Mao has been overshadowed though,
but it would tower over most other skyscrapers.
The three fit perfect with each other

Once again, SSC proves that it's full of gullible alarmists.

Indeed. Maybe it is an old (long ago rejected) proposal for the Tower?

Ive looked at the link by P&T and they are the Tianjin117 people. They should hopefully redesign that tower.

Besides that Shanghai needs to do something to "warm up" the Lujiazui area on the surface. I said this before, when I visited last October the area seemed cold and empty. Beautiful skyscrapers but it seems more like one big park with tourists and people selling fake Rolexes/tourist trinkets. Overall Shanghai is a wonderful city.

The layout of the actual construction site, the way/location where the mega-columns are constructed, the shape of the core....all clearly point to the twister design.

this so called "new design" is probably just an old design from long time ago.

most likely, the floors are formed by I-beams with metal plates on top. Then reinforcement bars will be laid on top of it, and finally concrete will be poured on top of it. Pretty much a composite floor (steel + reinforced concrete)
