The new version is much better, IMO. The setting beside the lake is awesome. As in many glass covered buildings, we should see a different building in reality compared to renderings. But looks nice.

Actually, if you look at my posts here:

...and here:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...7&postcount=20

You'll see that construction is already underway, (although it's hard to tell which towers they're working on now. They might be saving the big one for last).

agree with all of you, looks way better now! I wouldn't call it a masterpiece but it's still a proper design.

I found the website of the facade designers, but I don't know if this is an old/dismissed version or the final one. According to the profile the architect is SOM, and the main tower will have 80 floors, taller than expected:


Tianjin Kerry Center
Tianjin
Cladding Area: 100,000 m2
Architect: SOM, L & O, Mix Studio
Date : 2012

The project is located in TianJin, He Dong District on the East bank of the river. The approximate above ground floor area is 499,000 square meters, comprising; 3 luxury residential towers, a mixed use retail shopping podium, 5 star Shangri-la Hotel, and a 80 story Mega High-rise Office Tower.

Konstruct West Partners was appointed directly by Kerry Properties to provide full scope facade consulting services from technical design thru project completion.
