Jin Mao VS. Taipei 101

Which skyscraper do you prefer? Jin Mao in Shanghai or Taipei 101 in (it's obvious)

Jin Mao


Taipei 101

Taipei looks more unique. Jinmao looks like it needed to be a bit more stretched to the top. The top part looks a bit cropped.

Jin Mao no question. Harbeck it is supposed to resemble a pagoda. I forget the unique qualities of tp101. I know there are. I like the way buildings like jinmao portray inanimate and animae objects and the jinmao soars, has a kick ass facade, huge atrium, elegant spire, and totally dominates. Fantastic building, fantastic piece of architecture.

I love both of them, I choose JM because of its shorter spire. Spires suck!

I like both too. However I prefer the color theme of Taipei101 and it is more fancy than Jinmao! But Jinmao will have a handsome brother, SWFC, in the coming year.

I hate Taipei 101. Such an ugly building, it looks like some kind of insect with it's tail pointing up.

Taipei 101 to me looks like Chinese take-out food boxes stacked together

It is truly a traditional Chinese pagoda style. That's their original concept.

Taipei 101. Jin Mao's base/bottom part looks quite fat

Jin Mao, by far.
It's one of the best highrise buildings on the planet.

ah such a poopy picture of taipei 1o1. couldnt you have found a better. this is indeed a draw for me. i really like them both. taipei looks alot more stable and planted then jin mao. also i agree with the choped top comment, design is so well done until the last 2o% of the building. looks like the construction team ran out of supplies befor they could get the full hight in. oh well there both awesome!!!

I have seen this photo. Really nice shot!
But it looks a little bit 鹤立鸡群 . Don't get me wrong, I like it very much as a building alone.
