The view from the top of BK might be interesting in about 50 years time.

Agree with you. I believe there is rational reason about that....
Anyway SHANGHI TOWER is MY BEST FAVORITE SUPERTALL IN THE WORLD. I love this kind of twisting design.

Congratulation CHINA.

The view from BK is already interesting now.
Dubai is growing so fast, that the view will be completely different in already 15-20 years.

Been at Dubai airport twice, and I swear to god, I will never step my foot in that airport ever again. When you arrive an airport at 2am in the morning after a 8 hrs long flight, all you want is a seat so you can rest. Apparently, that's the busiest time for Dubai airport, I could not even find a chair for myself. The whole terminal was busy like a bazaar.

Was simply complaining the poor design of the terminal, too much room for shopping and too little seating space. Also the bad manner of some travelers, mainly locals

well i would not call Dubai Airport a "poorly designed airport"...it's actually one of the best in the World (tu veux qu'on parle de Roissy , notamment son terminal 1 pourtant fraîchement rénové ?)

Well, guess it's the travelers to be blamed then. Btw, not fair to compare Dubai with Roissy which was built like at least 40 yrs ago, Terminal 1 anyway. And again, even today, I still think T1 has the most amazing design in terms of architecture, it's one of a kind for airport terminals, whilst for T3 at Dubai, it's rather an eyesore to me.

This perspective is pretty cool. The two plots, one next to SWFC and the other next to Jinmao, look to be under construction. I think they are building the new subway line there.

Shanghai Tower looks completely different from this angle.

I had not realised how much thinner it is at the top than at the bottom - it really tapers.

Gorgeous shanghi tower it is twisting!!! wonderful breathtaking
It seem like a seeing "zahadi zah''s design and her design philosophy in skyscraper.

No symmetry and curved.. boxy building is really boring

What a superb cluster of supertalls! ST is really looking wonderful. I wonder when the crown will be completed though.
