Tianjin Chow Tai Fook Finance Centre
The design for the Tianjin Chow Tai Fook Finance Centre uses undulating curves to subtly express three programmatic elements while presenting a bold monolithic expression on the skyline. The 530-meter-tall skyscraper will house offices, service apartments, and a five-star hotel.
The gently curving facade conceals eight sloping columns that integrated into the architectural design in the same time increase the structure’s stiffness in response to seismic concerns. The tower’s aerodynamic shape reduces vortex shedding, which in return dramatically minimizes wind loads.
Sustainable strategies including a high-performance facade, optimized daylighting, and green landscaping.
