I only wish there would be more street level life.

And I think it looks way better than the original circle design.

haha circle? really?

if it was circle then the observation deck would've been too round for some people and very dangerous.


Much prefer trapezium in my view.

And btw amazing photos KIX111.

A ferris wheel?
Anyway, those night shots are good. You don't see huge TV screens on buildings often.
This building is certainly stunning.

This is also a question for everyone. Apart from the World Financial Center, which building do you think looks really good as well?

I wish we had buildings like this back in Australia. And also a city like Shanghai as well.
