Help identifying a structure

It flashed across the television in reference to Singapore, but I'm not sure that is correct. I've conducted several searches and browsed several Asian city pages here, but I cannot seem to locate it. Should prove easy for you lot.

It's quite a distinctive structure: a sphere on a tripod with a single central spire towering from the top. I don't know if it is an office building or residential, or possibly a museum of some sort. It's easily identifiable on the city skyline; I just haven't been able to locate any photos or a name.

Any help appreciated,
paul

Maybe the Oriental Pearl Tower?

That's it exactly. Many thanks!

Why isn't this included on the Shanghai city page?

It is a tower, and by default, towers are not included in the search. You have to either check tower as a searchable option and search again, or search from the diagrams page and set the options there.
