Architecture:  Kingkey 100 by Farrells: “..Here are some photographs of the 442-metre Kingkey 100 skyscraper designed by architects Farrells, currently the tallest building in Shenzhen and tenth tallest in the world..Completed at the end of 2011, the financial office tower was designed with a curving glass body and pointed tip..The curtain wall facade curls up at the base of the building to create a canopy over the entrance to the offices, while a shopping centre branches out from the other side. A hotel occupies the uppermost 25 floors of the 100-storey tower..Kingkey 100 is already set to be overtaken as Shenzhen’s tallest tower by the Ping An International Finance Centre, which is scheduled for completion in 2015 and expected to reach 648 metres..”  Glass, distinctive form, striking lower level interiors..
