shanghai tower emporis awardsThe Shanghai Tower won first place in the Emporis Skyscraper Award 2015. Vladimir ZH / Shutterstock This week, the world-renowned Emporis Skyscraper Award 2015 was given to The Shanghai Tower— the second consecutive Chinese tower to win the annual award.

Over 300 buildings were judged predominantly on "excellence in both aesthetic and functional design." To qualify, buildings had to be over 100 metres in height and completed in 2015.

The Shanghai Tower was selected as victor for its "elegant spiraling cylindrical shape," and "extraordinary energy efficiency."

More than just a pretty face, the £1.95 (.4) billion Chinese tower also boasts the world's fastest elevator, which propels guests up its 128 floors at 20 metres per second.

Both first and second place towers in the awards featured a twisted façade, a testament to the evolving nature of skyscraper architecture, which is diverging from the traditional linear structure thanks to new technologies.
