Jury-rating (extract): »The Shanghai World Financial Center stands out not only on account of its sheer height and the huge proportions of the floor plates, but also as its shape changes depending on the angle from which it is viewed, fitting well into the Shanghai Metropolitan Master Plan and championing a very simply elegance.«
