i have a question. being how significant this project seems to be to china and how symbolic it is supposed to be of chinas rise to becoming a major power, why did they choose a foreign architectural firm to create it rather than a chinese one? just curious.

The answer is simple. The decision showed China's determination to stick to carrying out its reform and opening-up policy. China wants to tell the world that it welcomes excellent designs from excellent foreign architectural firms.

They chose the design from a foreign architectural firm because foreign firms are better. Even though the tower is built in China, it still represents the western power. I think thats the answer you wanted by asking this kind of dumb question.

Main reason: Domestic architectural firms have low experience in designing towers of this height and quality. Until then, Chinese cities will have to rely on foreign (whether they are westerners, Japanese, w.e).

Although this tower is designed by a foreign firm , it still represents China's Power. It's built by our own money,not their money.
