Very nice pictures. Sometimes I thing that Shanghai Tower would also look good next to Guangzhou West Tower (because of the similar design) and Chow Tai Fook looks good next to Jinmao and Shanghai WFC (because Jinmao and WFC doesnīt look so lower next to Chow Tai Fook). But itīs just my opinion

does anyone know what the building's name actually means? Or else all of us on SHANGHAI TOWER'S thread would be making fun of it.

And someone ACTUALLY has that name? Well, they're Chinese, so I guess. And by "the supertall in Tianjin", do you mean the Goldin Finance 117?

It's more of a Southerner's name, as from Guangdong or Hong Kong.

Names in the North of China are such as Ling, Wu, Chen, Li, so on.

The name in pinyin would be Zhou Taifu, not so funky sounding then.
