JIN MAO TOWER - SHANGHAI, CHINA
JIN MAO TOWER
Built in 1998 as a China/American joint venture the Jin Mao Tower is the third tallest building in China at 1379 feet. This is one of the most stunning architectural structures I have ever seen. I can look at this building for hours and not get bored. I was in Shanghai during it's construction and could not believe the beauty of the design. This building is a wonder. We ventured to the top and could not see two feet in front of us. We were literally in the clouds with absolutely zero visibility. It did not matter that we could not enjoy the view. Just being in this building was a treat. It is without question an architectural gem not to be missed.
