Two Towers

Like many other cities in the world, Shanghai is building high buildings one after another. Some say that the sky line in Shanghai is just chaotic, but some just love the skyscapers in Shanghai. Well, the new world finacial trading center in Shanghai is still under construction, and right now its hight has already surpassed Jinmao Tower. It looks really nice in spite of some interesting stories about the original designs of the new tower. Anyway, the only thing I don't understand is why the two towers are so close to each other, which makes people think that they are competing with each other. Or maybe people who are making the tower do want to compete with Jinmao in some ways. But to some extent, the short distance between the two towers makes Pudong look more modern and newer. We will see how it will look like in several months...
