Shanghai Tower Enters Final Stage of Construction

After nearly eight years of design and construction, what will soon be China’s tallest and the world’s second tallest building has entered into its final phase of construction. Designed by Gensler, the 632-meter (2,073 feet) spiraling Shanghai Tower is now set to be completed in 2015, becoming the centerpiece of the city’s Lujiazui commercial district.

In the video below, produced by Nick Almasy Photography, Strabala – former Director of Design at Gensler and current Partner and Founder of 2DEFINE Architecture – talks about the remaining construction process, the challenges that lie ahead and how the design compares with that of Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building.
