In the latest pics you really get the sense of how this tower will dominate the skyline and everything around it.

Looks fantastic. I'm not an engineer but this looks to be hugely over-engineered and with a double curtain wall, the carbon footprint is not even on the agenda. With all the massive construction in China its a shame they still don't give a shit about the enviroment. You could probably still achive these huge ***** extensions using half the resources. I look forward to when China starts to build more streamlined supertalls, for me thats when i will look upon in awe! Bring it on.

I think the double wall is supposed to save energy in some way, trapping heat or something. Maybe someone else can explain better.

Amazing!
I think Shanghai has the most recognisable skyline on Earth.
There is the Oriental pearl Tower, Jin Mao, SWFC, Shanghai Tower, Aurora, and the HSBC twins, all with a river right in front of it.
Mainly Pearl and SWFC at the moment though, but soon Shanghai Tower will really dominate!
Kind of a shame there isn't much more planned at the moment, but who knows what the future will bring.

Regarding energy, I believe the design actually improves energy efficiency. The crown will collect rain water, and will generate a little bit of electricity via wind power.
I'm not sure how exactly the atriums will impact energy usage, but I wouldn't be surprised if all that extra enclosed air space is actually a good thing.

Sorry, but what a bullshit!
Shanghai Tower is designed to achieve LEED Gold certification.

"With wind turbines, a complex rainwater collection system, two envelope layers that surround nine interior sky gardens, and an ingenious design that mitigates lateral loads from wind and reduces the necessary structural steel by over 20 percent, this building is setting the bar high for super-tall buildings. Remarkably, all of these sustainable strategies are being implemented in China."

This building will be more sustainable than most buildings on this planet.

I miss...

I miss living there. We lived a couple blocks away from the Shanghai Tower. We left August 09, they had only begun the ground work at that point. I live in Dubai now, and they faked their skyline by making it all one line. We live right next to the Burj Khalifa, and I have to admit it's pretty bad-ass to see everyday. I don't miss the pollution in Shanghai.

One of the most sustainable and eco-friendly supertall building in the planet.

All of which is nothing compared to the amount of energy required to manufacture the materials for this building. Why build it in the first place, ego.

LEED certification counts resources used during construction too. There is a specific distance requirement for materials being sourced, type of material, etc that LEED requires for gold certification. If certain sustainability requirements are not met in both construction and use the building won't get LEED certification. Please stop talking out of your ass and go back to the Shard forum.

Either way, IMHO social responsibility and sustainability are some of the most bs, hollow and hypocritical thing a corporate can come up with.

You obviously have no idea about the certification.
Rise To The Top already said everything in his post below yours.

And before starting to point your finger at other countries....London's Shard only has LEED silver certification...in other words Shanghai Tower is the more sustainable tower
