New Chinese Tall Development: Award News – design by Gensler architects
The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has named Gensler’s Shanghai Tower as the 2016 Best Tall Building Worldwide, citing its “innovative design scheme in traditional Shanghainese architectural traditions.”
Three generations of China’s tallest buildings: the Jin Mao Tower (Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, 1998; 420.5 meters), left; the Shanghai World Financial Center (Kohn Pedersen Fox, 2008; 492 meters), and at right the new Shanghai Tower.
Ever since its completion last year, the Shanghai Tower has been the second tallest building on earth -- just behind the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
