Shanghai's City Planners Struggle With Unremitting Growth
According to Kuo-Liang Lee, an associate of Arup and Partners architectural office in the city, "There are now more than 4,000 buildings more than 100m tall in Shanghai." Shanghai has expanded inordinately in the past 15 years, but it has also wielded the wrecking ball with abandon, wantonly destroying much of what made this architectural melting pot so cherishable in the first place. City planners are scrambling to come up with plans to "control the development of new skyscrapers and deal with the problems that they have created."
