Several terrific new photos of Shanghai Tower have been recently posted on Marshall Strabala's Flickr studio.
Strabala is Chief Architect of Shanghai Tower and has led the design of the facility for about eight years. These pics were taken by Shanghai-based photographer, Nick Almasy.

What a massive building it is. Even at the very top !

And look at that crazy scaffolding... Is that like bamboo or something ? ...Just kidding...

Just for the record, that's not bamboo but rather steel rods painted in yellow. I have never seen bamboo used in any high rise constructions in China.
