The world’s second-tallest building

The world’s second-tallest building has been completed in China – and it is tall.

Architecture firm Gensler designed the 632 metre Shanghai Tower in Lujiazui.

The skyscraper curves and twists, helping it to withstand wind loads during typhoons, and it has now been officially added to ‘The world’s top 10 buildings’ as recorded by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

While Shanghai Tower is incredible, it’s still not as tall as the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which reaches an astonishing 828 metres.
