The way the glass is lining up reminds me of a navy building in London (Southwark?) from certain angles.

Strangely nobody ever mentioned this in this thread but I just learned this tower among all the technical features will also have tuned mass damper installed to minimize the buildings sway.



I found this on paper on shanghai tower I run into on flickr. Definitely worth reading. Heres the link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/csondi/...n/photostream/

Have to say even though shanghai tower is not the tallest or even may be considered not the prettiest depending on taste it's still because of all those technical solutions by far the most interesting tower right now worldwide. Seriously can you imagine something this tower doesn't have? It has unique double skin facade, the fastest state of the art Mitsubishi elevators, the highest open air observation deck, the highest occupied floor, wind turbines, sky gardens and now I learn it also will have tuned mass damper a solutions very few towers around the world have. Hell even burj khalifa seems a bit boring compared to this one

That photo with Yangpu Bridge is OMG!
Not a very commonly seen angle but I have to say it looks outrageously good.

Too bad ST is right behind SWFC, but probably a slightly different angle will still see the bridge and all 3 gigants.
