Project: Zhengzhou Youyi Tower
Location: Zhengzhou,  China
Area: 89,000 sqm
Scope: Architecture Design
Timeframe: 2010
Status: Concept Design

 

The project consists of an office tower, boutique hotel and retail plinth. The original building form is proportionally short and broad.

 

The inspiration comes from traditional Chinese mountain landscape painting and motif line drawings. The building form is likened to 2 interlocking mountains. By “drawing” over the building form, an abstract yet figurative Chinese image of twin mountains sitting atop clouds are created. These lines are aluminum panels as part of a curtain wall façade used to mask the columns, floor slabs and mechanical ventilation. The building thus becomes urban art for the city.
