Alsop designs ‘Erotic kiss for Shanghai’ 

A British based team lead by Alsop Design and Arup are to create a landmark structure to attract visitors to the World Expo 2010. Located on the Puxi side of the Huangpu River, the 250 m tall “Towering Kiss” will offer panoramic views over the historic Bund and the ‘Bladerunner’ vista of Pudong. Alsop Director Stephen Pimbley outlines the project, “The sculptural tower is set to rotate every 4 hours whilst a series of visitor pods travel up and around the legs offering unique and exciting views which will be forever changing as the kiss rotates and as the city of Shanghai evolves.”
