Terrifying (but stunning) images show Shanghai Tower cranes coming down
Cranes used to build the skyscraper are now being dismantled
These photos capture the stunning panorama of Shanghai from atop the 128-storey Shanghai Tower, six years after work on the immense skyscraper began.
The vertigo-inducing images show construction workers on the £1.6 billion structure as they dismantle cranes.
At 632 metres, the building is one of the tallest in the world, second only to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
One worker can be seen casually dangling his legs over the edge of a crane, while others are shown in hard hats and overalls taking the structures apart.
The Tower, which was designed by a team led by Principal Architect Jun Xia, is comprised of nine cylindrical buildings stacked atop each other containing 128 floors in total.
It has been under construction since 2008 and is expected to open to the public in 2015.
In February, two Russian climbers filmed themselves defying gravity (and death), by climbing the building without any ropes or climbing gear.
