judging by the other photo of the building itself, it looks like he just got out of the lift on the last stop and onto the roof.

OMG THIS ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





EDIT: this really is quite a profound photo, like photos of new york in the early 20th century. and yeah... out of a plane would be even more amazing. if someone is clever enough to take a light aircraft up on a day like this and get shots like these they'll be famous.

I see it too. Not just a similar colour cladding, but from the top, the columns match with the vertical windows and there are arch windows, they both look like they are from the same scribble. The big difference is that there is a skyscraper under the one in shanghai.
