[FIRST LOOK] Terry Farrell and Partners has revealed these images of its 120-storey ‘Z15’ skyscraper proposal for Beijing in China
Shaped like a traditional Chinese wine vessel, the 500 metre-tall structure will be the centrepiece of the capital city’s new ‘CBD’ business district.
It is claimed that once built the tower, which will house 60-floors of offices, a 20-storey hotel and serviced apartments will be Beijing’s tallest building.
The design features rounded square floorplates which reduce the structure’s ‘wind load’.
Working with the The China Academy of Urban Planning and Design, the overall project planners, the skyscraper has been designed with BIAD, ARUP and MVA.
Wu Chen of TFP Farrells, and the practice’s BIAD liaison, said: ‘We do hope this building becomes an ever-lasting work, of which the national capital city will be proud, for its quality, cultural characteristics and other intrinsic characters.’
