Chongqing needs to slow the construction speed and put up more high quality towers. These towers it built a few years ago look so old already. Every Chinese city should use SWFC, Greenland Plaza Nanjing, and West Tower Guangzhou as the quality benchmark.

They don't build crappy towers anymore. Anyway they are renovating many, many buildings in Jiefangbei. The white one on the right corner is being renovated, it used to be pink and quite ugly. Also the one behind it with a platform on the roof is being recladded with cute silver glassy stuff.

I totally agree more does not always mean better.This is the case with Chongqing it is great they are building many towers,but they should also focus on the aesthetic of the buildings and not just pack the skyline with whatever developers want.

I see they changed the design. Cool, I like the new design way better. I'm wondering how people can design such an ugly crown on a tower (1st design) and then design it for a Chinese city. Just don't see that happen.

I agree. The new design is much better and is also in line with Chongqing's vision to be a modern version of Manhattan. Hopefully the execution would do the design justice.

Chongqing's vision is to be a better chongqing, not mht or stuff

By making a bad rip off of the Chrysler Building? They better build an own style instead of becoming another copy cat of Manhattan.

Maybe it gives the looks, it has by far not the quality of the manhattan monuments, and then we are not even talking about all the rest which makes Manhattan, culture for example.

People who visit a museum for the first time always say that all pictures look alike.

Problem with many Chinese cities is that they don't even have a museum, and if they have it doesn't contain art... I heard that Chongqing doesn't even have a good bookstore! Maybe that's why only few building are really original and great, and most is cheap copy paste architecture. Japan had the same problem before they develloped their own modern style in Architecture.

Many Chinese cities have their generic wannebe NYC postmodern skyscrapers. Chongqing as well. For now I think it's not a bad thing at all, but I hope the future will bring something better.

What I meant was not that Chongqing wants to become Manhattan. Why would Chongqing want to do that? Manhattan is not like perfect. Just several buildings to give an idea of that kind of architecture and that is all. China has a lot more history that the cities can learn from.

Wait, I'm NOT attacking you. If I say things which are not true just tell me.

How many good bookstores are there? How many and what kind of museums does Chongqing have? Just tell me if I'm wrong.

Nice! Is it just me or is 2010's architecture in houses and skyscrapers going to be a lot like the late 20s and 30s?
