That's the tip with such a design.

It looks so different if it's facing, or square to one side, or lateral view...

Should be impressive to look at the top from the bottom, viewed in the "lateral" angle, like the huge bow of a gigantic ship

surely it does.

i may be wrong, but i think it has the tallest roof/floor. (of course not so when the dubai tower finished...)

Can we all agree that this will be the most beautiful building in Pudong, or are there still some holdouts for the Jin Mao?
