Warning: dizzying heights ahead. Fearless explorers Vitaliy Raskalov and Vadim Makhor--“Skywalkers” who regularly (and illicitly) scale the heights of some of the world’s tallest attractions--recently went to China to explore Gensler’s under-construction Shanghai Tower, the world’s second-tallest building.
