As the third tower in the trio of trademark high rises at the heart of Shanghai’s new Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone, Shanghai Tower epitomizes another model for tall structures. Located near Jin Mao Tower and Shanghai World Financial Center, the new tower ascends high over the horizon. Its bended façade and spiraling structure symbolizies the dynamic development of present day China. Be that as it may, its curving structure goes past simply making an exceptional appearance. Wind tunnel tests confirm a 24% savings in structural wind loading when compared with a rectangular building of a similar size. The following information provides more details about the building:
