It’s Supertall Saturday! Celebrating the 20th anniversary of its opening, the Jin Mao Tower in Shanghai houses a retail podium, corporate offices and a five star hotel. Designed by Adrian Smith while with @skidmoreowingsmerrill , when completed in 1999, Jin Mao was at 420 meters, the tallest building in China until 2007 when it was surpassed by the immediately adjacent Shanghai World Financial Centre. With the completion of the Shanghai Tower, Jin Mao remains the third tallest in Shanghai and is currently the 24th tallest building in the world. When I photographed the building in 1999, the last of the local Pudong villages along the Huangpu was preparing for demolition. A few months later, when I next visited, there was nothing left of these houses but dust. @skidmoreowingsmerrill @asggarch #highrise #som #tower #tallbuilding #skyscraper #timgriffithphoto #architecture #architecturalphotography #supertall #jinmao #shanghaiarchitecture @ctbuh_hq #supertallsaturday #archdaily #arkitektur #lujiazui #architettura #architecture_view #ic_architecture #jj_architecture #ThatsShanghai #shanghailife #Sky_High_Architecture #shanghai #shotonfilm
