China develops faster than I think since the past 10 years. Compare to other neighbours like VietNam, Laos....far more developed. That`s impressed me very much. And of course the main topic is the world highest skycraper in Shanghai, when I read the structure of it, truely amazing ! Check it out
The Shanghai Tower is organized as nine cylindrical buildings stacked one on top of the other with a double-skinned layer on the outside. The outside layer is triangular shaped and swivels as it reaches upwards. Designed by San Francisco-firm Gensler, the tower plans on accommodating offices, a luxury hotel, nine sky-gardens and various retail and cultural venues, as well as a new Shanghai Metro stop.
A lot of folks over here are saying that no matter how bad the current economic situation might get, the chances of this project losing funding is very slim. Ironically, this is probably due to the Mori Building, whose own construction was halted in its tracks by the Asian Financial Crisiseven if The Shanghai Tower turns out to be a money loser, there`s no way the Chinese would`ve stood for having a Japanese building dominate their soil.
