Itīs a pity that Shanghai Tower hasnīt 2 more meters of floor area, it would be worldīs largest tower, before Shanghai WFC.

It's amazing how it all goes up in China!
China, assuming the role of a rising superpower, polarizes a boom in super-talls never seen in the world in these proportions.
It is exciting to see this tower up!

Honestly, I think this tower is hugely overrated. It's not badly designed, but I don't get all the praise it receives here. There is nothing really hugely impressing to it besides its size IMO and they tried too hard making the form extraordinary looking. It's a pretty huge building in a pretty huge city (filled with some horribly tacky designs, that Pearl Tower needs to go asap), but that's pretty much it. IMO, the real great thing is its smaller neighbor Jin Mao. Elegant, sleek, no pretentious extraordinary design.

I do not understand your view, but the fact of not understanding does not mean I do not accept it, is totally welcome, unanimity is stupid after all.
I disagree with you because this drawing was present in a smaller building would be totally horrible (like many scattered here in Brazil), but to me, which gave a certain beauty to the project was the enormity of the project.
And the positive impact on the Shanghai skyline is undeniable.
