Known for its distinctive form and design elements, Shanghai World Financial Center (SWFC) is an award-winning mixed-use development in the heart of Shanghai’s Pudong New Area. Developed by Shanghai World Financial Center Co. Ltd., the supertall tower holds the 2nd tallest building in Shanghai and the 11th tallest building globally.

Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates and East China Architectural Design & Research Institute, SWFC’s most notable feature is its tower crown, which houses an observatory deck providing spectacular views of the surrounding skyline while reducing wind load on the building. With the assistance offered by ALT as the facade consultant, the curtain wall system functions efficiently after more than a decade of its completion. Situated in China’s financial and cultural hub, Shanghai World Financial Center is a unique development recognized even in future generations.
