taipei 101 just plain sucks! whatever the architects says of bamboo concept it is totally cr*p and full of kitsch. jin mao has more refinement and elegance, and the attributes are clearly subtle but present.
and to taipei 101 supporters, well you have your own say. so this is just my own opinion as a practicing designer.

Taipei 101 looks more "chineser" than Jin Mao... just my thought

I know Taipei 101 is the tallest and all but the Jina Mao tower looks like an architectual wonder. The Design is so much more interesting and it is so beautiful. taipei 101 are is just a very tall pagoda but still nice.

BTW: I voted for Jin Mao tower

jin mao... t101 is terrible with all those tacky chinese-pretentious ornaments which is a shame really considering jin mao was designed by americans and t101 is designed by taiwanese architects.

The Jin Mao is the only "landmark" looking skyscraper right now in The Mainland.

taipei 101.

it stands out. it dominates the skyline. it commands your attention no matter where you're looking at it from.

jin mao looks like just another office buildling surrounded by other office buildings.

I dislike the tapering effect on both, but the Tapai 101 looks more impressive in person
