Whoa.

I like it!

Very futuristic.

It somehow reminds me of the Beijing Water Cube.

crazy weird! :D

It reminds me of a 21st-century version of the Alcoa Building in Pittsburgh - metal companies are all the same.

It is like a different variation of Aqua tower currently being constructed in Chicago. A unique way to create a wave effect on the facade. I like it!

This building is truly a work of art. . .

Love it.

An impressive structure. Hope it gets built.

That's the first thing I thought of as well. Nonetheless, it looks quite interesting.

Hoodrat Sep 20, 2008 7:09 PM

too cool!!!

RLS_rls Sep 20, 2008 9:59 PM

Thats a really clever design, but is the roof actually going to be covered like in the rendering?

Fabb Sep 21, 2008 7:28 PM

A nice combination of fantasy and elegance.
Good job !

That's a little scary.


But nonetheless, this building looks fantastic.

Does anyone know if the facade is structural?

Stu Sep 22, 2008 1:26 AM

^As in a sort of exo-skeleton? Dunno. Doesn't seem to look that way.

This is a very strong design. Tianjin is getting some fine skyscrapers, though that 1800 + ft tower is not that great in the renderings at least, IMO.

is there anything on this??????

It's awesome, although the interiors look kinda space-pod-y, thus sort of dated... they'll have to handle those very carefully. :)

:previous: i thought of that building when i saw this too, anyways, there's a mega-thread over at SSC that covers all the buildings surrounding this, and they have pics of the construction, but i can't tell whether this one in particular is U/C
