Oriental Pearl Tower

Interesting
Is this a UFO, a transgenic insect or a giant ball on a stick? The unusual silhouette of the Pearl of the Orient tower (1994, 468m) rises on three columns amid a mass of tubes and spheres, steel and concrete. On level 3, the revolving restaurant offers sweeping 360° views. Inside the tower, the Shanghai History Museum showcases re-creations of traditional habitats and major historical events.
