ARCHITECTURE I admire: Shanghai World Financial Centre


Designed by Kohn Pederson Fox, this 460m tower is located in the Lujiazui Financial and Trade District in Pudong, Shanghai.  The building's most remarkable feature, apart from its height, is the 50m cylindrical void at the top, dubbed the "moon gate". This opening, which gives the tower the appearance of an archaic Chinese artifact, serves to relieve wind pressure on the structure.
