Shanghai - Two and a Half Skyscrapers

The buildings in the photo are Shanghai's tallest - all three of them, even if the future tallest "Shanghai Tower" aka "Shanghai Center" aka 上海中心 is still under construction.

 

After completion in 2014 the Shanghai Center will be the tallest building in China and the second-tallest in the world, surpassed only by the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. The Shanghai Center is designed by the American architectural firm Gensler. For those interested in the progress, here is a photo taken about 6 months earlier, same location.
