The 121-storey transparent glass Shanghai Tower will twist and taper as it rises to a height of 632 metres, making it China’s tallest skyscraper. Yet despite its complexity, the design team has developed an elegantly simple solution. – See more at: http://sourceable.net/simplifying-the-structure-of-chinas-tallest-skyscraper/#sthash.gCdY6NfE.dpuf
