It may not be as tall as Taipei 101, but what it lacks in height it makes up for in good looks!

Taipei 101 sucks with that spire!

SWFC rules and it is beautiful. Congrats to China and Shanghai on such masterpiece of modern architecture.

They will have Taiwan in 9 years though so there is no need for competition.

shanghaipanda, you can't use html on this forum to post locations to pictures but you can use VB script using [img]insert_image_location_here[/img]

If you right click on the picture on a website and select 'View Image', the URL of that image will appear in your address bar at the top of the screen.

Copy the text and paste it into your reply box and put the [img][/img]around the pasted image URL

Or, simpler still....hit the advanced button before hitting submit and select the "Insert Image" button (looks like a small picture of a mountain scene) which is located 4 icons in from the right hand side (2nd row)

Then you just paste you image URL into the box that pops up and hey presto....you get something like this.....



If you're still not sure, now click the "Quote" button to the bottom right of this post and in the little white box will be my VB code that I just put in to make that picture appear.

Hope it helps?

That's good. Guess we just have to deal with idiots in every country -- plenty of them here too.

i'm sorry if i didnt make it clear: I post this image just for fun, since they really look alike....prize for the imagination personally,i dont have problem with the design.since if we have problem with the japaness national flag, we have problem with the SUN ITSELF, and that will be a problem little hard to fix.......


actually, my first impression of this building is: what a BOTTLE OPENER. anybody else agrees?
