Shanghai China Buildings and architecture

 

Shanghai is divided into two characteristic parts, located on either shore of the river. Pu Xi (western town) features early-20th century architecture, Pu Dong (eastern town) is a strikingly new financial district built in some 15 years to grant the city ultramodern look. The government pumped loads of money and efforts to create an innovative city image.

There is no space shortage, and some of the newly-grown office buildings remain empty, but with increasing domestic and international commercial influx there will be constant demand for real estate. The Oriental Pearl Tower is the highest structure of the kind in Asia. It is a landmark construction with two distinctive shining metal-plated cupolas, to which it owes its name. The imposing Grand Hyatt Shanghai is the highest hotel in the world, occupying 53rd to 88th floor of a skyscraper.

Jin Mao Building or Jin Mao Tower is an 88-story landmark building, housing the abovementioned Grand Hyatt Hotel and many offices. It is the tallest building in China, the fifth tallest in the world by roof height and the seventh - by pinnacle height. It 2008 the scheduled Shanghai World Financial Center will surpass it.

It is a picturesque area, containing 52 buildings of such styles as Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassical, Beaux-Arts, Art Deco.
