Shanghai is an endless sea of high rises. Some of the worlds taller building stand there, rubbing shoulders with ramshackle old buildings and cookie-cutter garbage.
The facade of the Jin Mao Tower is an endless mosaic of pipes on top of glass. Surfaces are angled and cut up into smaller panes, and there are endless reflections of the surrounding buildings and the sky.
I must confess that this is probably the most likable building in all of Shanghai for me.
