Definitely "Past - Present - Future"!
Past - traditional pagoda style shape with intricate details
Present - Clean cut design with minimal details
Future - Organic curves spiralling into the sky!

Shanghai doesn't really have the quantity that other cities do, but it sure has the quality.

I didn't start this. The past ten pages are full of New York vs. Shanghai crap. It should've been stopped long ago.

Exactly! They may as well criticise the buildings somewhere else so that they don't clutter up the space with this argument

Will not be any final "surprise" in the definitive height of the tower? If it only grows 30 more metres, it will be the highest building in China, even after Shenzhen´s Ping An Center is completed.
