Modern China Architecture - Shanghai Tower Twists its Way to the Top

Reaching for the sky, the spectacular design for The Shanghai Tower is a twisting, winding marvel of modern architecture. At 632 meters, Shanghai Tower is said to rise 140 meters higher than the Mori Building –currently the world's highest observatory – securing its title as the tallest building in China. Consisting of nine cylindrical buildings, stacked and enclosed in an outer double skin, this ultra-modern design, by San Francisco-based Gensler, will house office space, a luxury hotel, nine gardens, a retail component and entertainment, and will be a stop along Shanghai’s new Metro stop.
