The Shanghai World Financial Center highlights the Pudong district's skyline with 21st-century minimalism and sharp-edged design. The American firm, Kohn Pedersen Fox, are the architectural visionaries behind the skyscraper which took a decade to complete. It towers at 492 meters (1,614 feet) above ground level and its observatory was the tallest of its kind at that time. Scale the heights to the top of 101 stories for panoramic views of downtown. With the trapezoidal rupture at its peak, the structure has an uncanny resemblance to a bottle opener, which is one of the quirky souvenirs available at the gift shop. The multifunctional space encompasses offices, boutiques and the luxurious Park Hyatt hotel.
