OMA completes Shenzhen Stock Exchange tower

Rem Koolhaas’ practice OMA has completed it’s second project in China, a 46-storey skyscraper for the Shenzhen Stock Exchange

The 180,000m² tower defies ‘conventional building typology of tower-on-podium’ with a three-storey ‘podium’ cantilevered 36m above the ground. This floating block, which contains the listing hall and offices of the Stock Exchange, is raised above a public space at ground floor level and is topped with a roof garden.

Along with the headquarters of the Shenzhen Stock Exchange the tower contains rental office space and is topped with a club and canteen.

OMA won the competition to design the skyscraper in 2006.


Architect’s view

Rem Koolhaas, partner, OMA

‘The Shenzhen Stock Exchange embodies the Pearl River Delta’s phenomenal transformation over the past thirty years.

‘We are greatly excited about the building from an architectural standpoint, but I believe its true significance emerges when viewed in an economic, political, and ultimately social context. We are immensely honoured to contribute to Shenzhen’s 21st century landscape.’
