The Architecture and Culture Society of China on Monday unveiled a list of the "new top 10 landmark buildings in Shanghai," with the iconic Shanghai Tower at the heart of the Lujiazui Financial and Trade Zone sitting atop.
The Hongqiao Transportation Hub, the Shanghai Jinmao Tower and the Oriental Pearl Tower appeared on the list as well.
The National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), venue for the China International Import Expo, and the Shanghai World Expo Cultural Center (now the Mercedes-Benz Arena) also ranked among the top 10.
All the candidates were completed between 1978 and 2019 that have distinctive characteristics of the times of Shanghai's reform and opening up, while the winners stood out based on their architectural culture, aesthetics and influence, according to the ACSC.
