JM is one of the nicest buildings that China could offer. It is just magnificant, Taipei 101 is just glass with a spire. In fact, JM is in my top 10 worldwide.

Aesthetically speaking, Jin Mao is one of the most beautiful skyscrapers in the world. Its looks absolutely glamorous.

Taipei 101 is taller, and newer.

Jin Mao for me.

Taipei 101 of course. T101's architect based the design of a stalk of bamboo.
T101 is a cultural destination in Taipei, it is a social event, a place everyone wants to be.

Jin Mao is just another Las Vegas-assee edifice on sinking landfill.
