I'd love to know too, it looks like something special might be going up in those prime plots.

who is the designer of the Shanghai Tower

To all those fumbling with questions...and wonderings..
here is the answer of who designed the Shanghai Tower

Marshall Strabala, stray-ba-la, American award-winning designer is the author of the Shanghai Tower, having now designed 3 of the 10 tallest buildings in the world...Burj Dubai, Nanjing Greenland Zifeng Tower and the Shanghai Tower. Google him...Strabala has 28 years supertall and international design experience. Harvard graduate

Strabala was Associate Ptnr at SOM/Chicago for 19yrs whereby he worked with SOM partner Smith on the Burj for 3.5yrs designing and managing a staff of 40 people for 4 years.
He then took on the initial competition entered design for Nanjing Greenland, and for those in the know.. designs submitted in the competition phase are the images built with some modifications. Thus is the case with Strabala's design of Zifeng (hint...the elevated street bridge was removed from initial design, but Marshall's original design was in tact as you see it erected today.
Strabala, was recruited by Gensler in 2006 to elevate the design level worldwide for Gensler as their Director of Design. He's a master builder and sought after. Marshall designed the Shanghai Tower with a small staff of 3 other American people in 2006/2007.No Chinese staff were involved in the design. WHen the design was selected by numerous Chinese committees, Strabala moved to Shanghai to supervise and CONTINUE designing as approval process is lenghtly. Strabala the chief architect of the Shanghai Tower, and this title is in the legal contract, Director of Design a special title created for him by Gensler, managed a staff of 40 very inexperienced Gensler staff who knew little about highrises. Gensler is an interior decoration firm... some American staff managed to learn some from working on the tower...and these are the Gensler people making these post work videos. There are many inaccuracies and exaggerations in them.
Strabala delivered DD to the client and left Gensler in 2010 to open his own firm 2Define Architecture with offices in Shanghai, Chicago, and Seoul.
The Shanghai Tower client immediately hired Strabala (2010) as their chief architect of the project to continue on...as he is the author of the project and knows how to build a supertall ......
Strabala works weekly in Shanghai on the tower and was just interviewed on Chinese news station at the facade panel installation. Gensler was not at this celebration.

Very interesting and informative post joan mills. Didn't think the same people were responsible for designing of burj and shanghai tower as those were two different firms. The world is small I guess...

First thought you were talking about the White Magnolia http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=474885 development but I see what the sites you're talking about, don't know either.
