Nearly seven years after it was first introduced to the world in concept form, the Shimao Wonderland Intercontinental Hotel has finally been unveiled to the public and has well and truly lived up to its billing as the world's most innovatively designed skyscraper hotel.

Located in the megacity of Shanghai in China, the Shimao Wonderland Intercontinental Hotel is situated against the wall of a cliff, with only two of its floors located above ground level while the remaining 16 are located below. What's more, two of the hotel's floors are situated underwater.

In addition to providing for a truly breathtaking aesthetic for guests and onlookers alike, this skyscraper hotel also speaks to the value of innovative architecture in maximizing space in an increasingly crowded urban environment.
