So, today it was announced by Architectural Record that Gensler is the top billing architectural firm in America, snaking it out from under longstanding heavyweights AECOM.  So in honor of that, Great Spaces is looking at their most recent project underway in China. 

Not to be confused with the soon-to-be-tallest-building-in-the-world, supposed-to-be-built-in-90-days building, Gensler’s Shangai Tower will soon be China’s tallest building, coming in at a whopping 632 meters.  Another building advertising itself as a “self-contained city,” it is going to be the star of Shanghai’s financial district.  At first glance, it may not look like anything special, just a skyscraper with a swoosh, but with so many things, the beauty is in the details…
