CTBUH Conference Video:
Shanghai Tower: Re-thinking the Vertical City
Jianping Gu, President, Shanghai Tower Construction & Development Co Ltd


September 19, 2012
Shanghai, China

More important than Shanghai Tower’s shear height is the innovation it delivers - in its twisting, crystalline form; in the vertical zones of rich multi-functions; in the communal skygardens throughout its height; in its unique environmental technologies; and in the advanced fabrication and construction processes to enable it. In this presentation we gain insight from the owner-developer on the motivations behind the project, and how the project is fast moving to reality.
