This cluster is just Incredible,, I take my kids downtown Detroit,, Yes Detroit for a baseball game,, and they are Just Flabbergasted at the Skyscrapers,, The tallest one would be 221 Meters.. Just Imagine how they would look up at these.

Crown seems to be moving a bit slowly - but I guess they always do.

The tower reminds me to one of the cartoons of "Purple and Brown"

I think the construction is paused due to a summit meeting in Lujiazui.

Perhaps some one can contact the Architectural Firm to see if the height changed from 632 meters?

Seriously beautiful angle. Awesome! Objects of art.

Am still thinking that circular flat level at the top may be a helicopter landing pad.

When I was last in Shanghai, this was just a concrete core, but I have to ask whether these three clash as much in real-life as they appear to in photos...

I think much of it has to do with light: they cladding on all three looks dull-grey when it's overcast/cloudy but are a bit more brilliant in the sun (obviously).

So I guess I'm reacting to seeing them in the former condition. I just can't help feeling a bit jarred. I don't quite know why...
