Shanghai to have China’s tallest building – Dragon to dwarf the city’s skyline – Shanghai Daily

CHINA’S tallest building, to be built in Shanghai, will look like a coiled dragon, according to its designer. The 580-meter-high Shanghai Center will top the city’s skyline.

The US firm Gensler and the Shanghai-based Architectural Design & Research Institute of Tongji University. A dozen overseas and domestic firms offered designs for the building from April 2005 but Gensler’s “Dragon” finally defeated the “Bamboo Shoot” from Britain’s Foster & Partners.
