It's the Jinmao Building - taking the shape of bamboo shoots.

I think we should set a rule that anybody who post a ST picture with OFC in it is required to point it out in the caption. The question has been asked a million times in this thread already.

though it has been posted a million times it may be posted another million times more because someone visiting this thread for the first time may not go through every other page looking for the answer and anyway there's no harm answering it once more.

Two of the best skyscrapers in the world in the picture above and they aren't even the focal point. Only a city like Shanghai has this ability

Doing some work on this one. Our company is designing the fašade.

The design of the glass fašade is intended to reduce wind loads on the building by 24%, meaning fewer construction materials are needed, and the twisting feature will collect rainwater to be used for the tower's air conditioning and central heating systems.
