The Shanghai Tower rises high above a forest of skyscrapers

Gensler

With a total of 121 stories, this self-contained city designed by Gensler is the tallest structure in China and the second tallest tower in the world.

Nine buildings tall

The tower is designed as nine buildings stacked one on top of the other. Between each stack are open-air gardens, that give visitors the feeling of being outside.

Shanghai Tower will be one of the most sustainable and advanced towers in the world

Wind turbines in the tower will generate power, while the double skin-glass facade of the structure will help with insulation.
