Sorry, I thought that by your username.
Wikipedia about China Hands:

Quote:
The term China Hand originally referred to 19th-century merchants in the treaty ports of China, but evolved to reflect anyone with expert knowledge of the language, culture, and people of China. In 1940s America, the term "China Hands" came to refer to a group of American diplomats, journalists, and soldiers who were known for their knowledge of China and influence on American policy before, during, and after World War II.
This term has always been referring to non-Chinese persons with knowledge about China.

I heard somewhere I think in this forum, that after this their going to take a BREAK from 2000 footers, probably read that 1 to 200 pgs ago. Too bad they have a good thing going I would like them to start planning a 24-2500 footer.

who is going to take a break? the chinese or shanghai? shanghai of course, would be just too amazing if the planned a taller one right afterwards, but i think we can see some more supertalls in the area, not megatalls, but supertalls in a few years in the planning stage. for the chinese i do not think so, there are so many ambitious plans for more megatalls, let alone there are still concepts for a 700m building in suzhou and an 800m one in Shenzhen. We won't see a stop for megatall construction in a while

Shenzhen has a truckload of supertalls in the planning. No way that they take a break.

who designed the Shanghai Tower

For all the new people on this discussion board...
ask yourself who designed this elegant sustainable supertall..and what kind of experience does it take to come up with the ideas and manage the execution.
Marshall Strabala, award winning American architect is the designer and Chief Architect of Shanghai Tower...google him and flickr.com his photostream.
Read the interviews, articles and videos of those in the know, who are asking the right questions.
Strabala designed the supertall as Director of Design/Chief Architect of the project during his 4yr tenure with Gensler. Gensler is an interiors firm and so with Strabala gone ...well you connect the dots for Gensler

Strabala opened his own firm 2Define Architecture in 2010, and of course the Shanghai Tower client hired him immediately to stay on as their chief architect, so now Strabala supervises Gensler his former employer...read the fascinating article in Jan 2013 That's Shanghai Magazine on the ST and the people behind it.
www.thatsmags.com/shanghai/article/view/11967
search... marshall strabala regularly for updated photos of ST and Strabala comments on the challenges....

The photographer would have used a 6-9 stop neutral density (ND) filter to greatly slow the exposure down, allowing the water to be still and glassy.
ND filters can also be used to great effect showing to movement of clouds in landscape photography, or another cool effect can be if you are taking architectual shots in a busy area, with passing traffic,the ND fiter can effectively render the traffic invisible.

By the way , great shots little universe

Yeah Shanghai, forgot to mention that, and when does the Chinese New Year end? So we can see this thing rise again? Interesting article Joan Mills,, it's definitely worth the read.
