The irony is that, although everything is made in China, this tower was designed from the brilliant minds of American architects at the Gensler firm headquartered in the lovely city of San Francisco.

Not that it makes difference to your point but was it actually designed by Gensler?

The Chinese are the only ones who have the guts to build it, I find that more ironic as it becomes a great symbol of China not America.

There's nothing gutsy about it; it's about market dynamics: it makes sense.

Well it was designed by Gensler's Shanghai office which mostly consists of Chinese architects. The design team was led by the Chinese architect Jun Xia.
