Let's not forget that it's an American design.

I believe its Genslers' San Francisco office that did the main design. But they're supported by a local design firm as well.

The tips of the cranes are definitely above Jin Mao's height??

The two towers are equal distance from the vantage point of the photo.

Are you sure? The video below shows interview with gensler's chinese division team members. They talk about it as about theirs "creation". No doubt some if not most of the technological know how could have came from the gensler's years of experience, but if we talk solely about the design (look) of the tower I wouldn't be surprised if it was designed by chinese team.

Funny how the comparison diagram of skyscrapers in that video, altered the burj khalifa to make it look shorter in comparison to the shanghai tower. Accident or purposeful deception?

The head of the team was from the SF office (and probably a few other key members) but they used a local team from the Architectural Design & Research Institute of Tongji University (check the very last page of the PDF).

Yup as I thought. So that doesn't make it American design a lot.
