The Design

Recognised as one of the world’s greenest skyscrapers, Shanghai Tower achieved LEED Platinum certification. The structure features a double-glass facade, one of several green technologies that will reduce the building’s carbon footprint by 34,000 tonnes per year. The tapering spiral shape at the top was designed to be eco-friendly, by minimising wind loads.
