NBBJ reveals conceptual 'no shadow' skyscraper

  • 1 Comment

NBBJ has revealed concept designs for a skyscraper on the Greenwich Peninsula that will allow daylight to reach the street below

The ‘no shadow tower’ has been designed to ensure light reaches the street and reduces what NBBJ described as the ‘gloom and doom’ effect.

Proposed for a site near the Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners-dsigned O2 arena on Greenwich Peninsula, the mixed-use tower would reduce shadows by 60 per cent compared to similar skyscraper designs.

It was designed using an algorithm which translates the sun’s incident angles into the building’s form, while also taking into account other factors including views of the Thames and adjacencies to employees on other office floors.

The practice said that although the designs were ‘just conceptual’ at this stage, it was looking for developers who might be interested in taking the project forward.
