the Dragon is from Gensler, and it is the one you can see in the last pic on page 61 ( tower in the middle for sure ). and i guess it is called the dragon design because it reminds a bit on a dragon-tail i guess

Looking at Shanghai down from top of shanghai world financial centre was high enough, but top of this one will just be dizzy.

Well it'll really piss off the UAEans or UAEese people or however you call people from UAE.

If this tower you say gets built, too much weight will just sink the whole tower right into the Pudong mudground. (not literally)

BTW hope Eduardo gets healed quickly, watching Croatia teammates play in Euro at home must piss him off bad.

Apparently he's walking a light jogging again which is good news. He should be back in full training by December. I love him.

Anyway back to topic...

2008-6-6 10:40:32| 上海中心设计方案今确定 美国根森公司龙型
签约
标签:上海中心 设计 |

今天早晨9点,引人注目的“上海中心”设计签约仪式在国家开发银行五楼的会议室举行。主办方表现得很低调。

最终,上海中心设计签约仪式圆满结束,美国GENSLER建筑设计事务所的“龙型”设计方案中标。此前有消息称,激烈角逐的美国“龙型”和英国“尖顶型”两种方案,由于综合各方面因素,前者占有明显优势,故此次中标亦在情理之中。


It basically says Gensler's dragon design was the successful design for Shanghai Centre
