With its undulating metallic structure, the Jinmao Tower (1998) is an audacious reinterpretation of the Kaifeng pagoda. While the exterior shines bright red at sunset, the inside is delicately decorated with alternating gold and black metal. A giant atrium pierces the upper 30 storeys, occupied by the Grand Hyatt hotel. The number eight, signifying good fortune and perfection, features strongly here: the tower stands at number 88 of Century Avenue, and has a total of 88 floors.
