Shanghai Tower, Gensler, Daniel W. Winey, Pudong, ChinaArchitectural Design Of The Year
AAP American Architecture Prize

Platinum Award
Commercial Architecure
AAP American Architecture Prize

"As the tallest building in China Shanghai Tower, designed by Gensler, has had an immediate and profound impact on the country’s perceptions of how a skyscraper can contribute to a city, a country, and a culture. Not only does it rise over Shanghai as a new symbol for its modern emergence on the global stage, but also points the way forward for technical innovation accomplished within the parameters of a Chinese cultural identity. Powerful in form yet delicate in appearance, Shanghai Tower would be a graceful addition to any skyline, but its function, identify, and symbolism are firmly rooted in the needs of its specific site."
2016
