Shanghai Tower goes from strength to strength
  • venynxvenynx March 15
    Glittering skyscrapers have sprung up all over the city, but
    Shanghai Tower stands tallest, and not only because of its height.To get

    Shanghai Tower redefines what a supertall building can achieve through
    environment-friendly design, creating the concept of “sustainable
    vertical urbanism,” a paradigm for future megacities.



    Twisting 632 meters above the Lujiazui financial hub, the “crystal
    spiral” is the tallest building in China and the second tallest in the
    world, surpassed only by the 828-meter Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Covering
    578,000 square meters, it has 127 floors above the ground, five
    underground and holds several world records. It features the world’s
    heaviest damper, with a weight of 1,000 tons.



    Weighing 850,000 tons, it is built on soft ground and is widely regarded as the world’s greenest skyscraper.



    The first building in the world over 400 meters to be awarded the top
    green rating, a platinum-level leadership in energy and environmental
    design certificate by the US Green Building Council, it also holds a
    National Green Building Label from the Ministry of Housing and
    Urban-Rural Development.Shanghai Tower incorporates more than 40
    energy-saving features, which have reduced the tower’s energy
    consumption by 20 percent since it was put into use. Last year, its
    carbon dioxide emissions fell by 11,000 tons, as effective as 100,000
    30-year-old fir trees.



    The building collects rainwater used for gardens, toilets, and cooling
    and heating systems. The rain collection system can recycle 25 percent
    of rainwater and supplies 245,000 cubic meters of water to the tower
    every year, reducing the tower’s water consumption by 53 percent. There
    are 270 wind turbines spinning at the top of the tower, which can
    generate up to 1.19 million kwh of green power per year, about 10
    percent of that needed.



    The building is wrapped in two layers of glass for natural cooling and
    ventilation. Plants and trees on the rooftop increase the rain seepage
    rate and help to keep it cool in the summer. And inside there are more
    than 20 gardens, including one in an elegant Suzhou style.



    To encourage people to use cars with lower emission, the tower has many
    parking spaces for new-energy cars in premium locations, close to
    elevators.Not only a paragon of ecological design, the vertically
    integrated community stacks shops, offices and cafes on a vertical
    plane, redefining previously horizontal urban communities.



    The tower was chosen as one of the best tall buildings in the world in 2016 by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.



    In the citation, the CTBUH said that Shanghai Tower showed the greatest
    commitment to communal space in a tall building and contained the
    world’s first truly inhabitable double-skin facade on a skyscraper,
    remarkable for its incorporation into the tower’s overall ventilation
    strategy. The tower has nine “vertical communities,” each of which
    covers 12 to 15 floors.



    Every community has “sky lobbies” which are participatory spaces between
    the layers of the double-skin façade. They function as an open-air
    square of a town where people gather, talk and dine. Tenants don’t need
    to take elevators downstairs to have a cup of coffee or buy a sandwich,
    which, naturally and obviously, saves electricity.



    Offices from the eighth to the 81st floors, are divided into five
    “vertical communities,” and have attracted the regional headquarters of
    multinational companies.
