MARCH 2014 CLUE: The tower, 1,380 feet high, was the tallest in its country when it was completed over a decade ago. Now its neighbors can look down on it.
MARCH 2014 ANSWER: The answer to the March issue’s Guess the Architect is Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), which designed the Jin Mao Tower in Shanghai in 1999. At the time it was China’s tallest tower. Since then SOM and its design partner at the time, Adrian Smith, completed the world’s tallest tower, the 2,717-foot-high Burj Khalifa in Dubai in 2010.
