Guys, that is not a design at all. Just a concept to show the mere size of a tower that can provide such floor area. Don't be hating on a block that will never ever be built.

Well to me it looks as if that park in Pudong would have to be completely destroyed for this building....

This is NOT going to be build. Its just a concept!

And 666 meters, yeah right. Nobody is going to enter a building with THAT hight

Architects or other companies sometimes showcase an incredible building just to get some attention. Sometimes they even provide scheme's, studies, floorplans, etc around it just to show off. It's more like a case study.

This isn't even a company showcase, it is a conceptual idea that the city is planning for. If you read the article, you'd know that major firms from around the world were invited to the release, which means they want proposals from them.

How do you know? They said they are looking for architects to submit designs immediately

I really hope this will get build someday but I doubt it. Not in this form. Reading the articles I still think this is sort of a case study. To look if a building like this may be feasible in the future. Looking for architects that can submit their design still means nothing. I can still be an overall case study/vision. But we will see what will happen with this, maybe I'm wrong...

Anything's possible, I'm one of those who'd rather be glass half full than empty regardless if this is just a study. And hey, anything can happen in China.

You dont know anything so please lower you voice -smaller letters. It is an eye sore. Once upon a time Shanghai Tower was a concept, too.

Also, you know what I would be delighted if it was 666 meters

Can no one read on these boards?

This tower is a CONCEPTUAL model being used to show a tower that can house and provide for 17,000 people. Do remember that once upon a time the conceptual model for the Shanghai Tower was a big block, for a long time.

昨日,远大可建“空中城市”建筑方案设计招标信息发布会在上海世博园远大馆会议厅隆重举行。远大可建决定采用它创建的技术体系来设计建造一座前所未有的可持续超高层建筑——“空中城市”。



据悉,这座“空中城市”为“混合社区”综合楼,集住宅、办公、商业、餐饮、影剧院、学校、医院等社区功能于一体。大厦设计高度达666米,地上200层,建筑面积124万平方米,可容纳7~11万人。

可建和传统建筑不一样的地方在于它是采用可持续的建筑理念实行工厂化精益制造的建筑。整座建筑本身从承重结构、门窗墙体到建筑设备都是统一设计并在工厂里制造完成,只需在现场按图“组装”,施工现场几乎看不到通常的成堆建筑垃圾。令人意外的是,如此“组装”快捷建造的建筑,安全性能却更高,达到了9度抗震的建筑安全最高标准。不仅如此,远大可建还拥有许多出人意料的惊奇:6倍节材、5倍节能、1%的建筑垃圾、20倍洁净空气、全年20~27度的恒温。

据悉,远大可建“空中城市”建筑设计并不是为追求所谓的摩天大楼“地标”意义,它的目标是用理性的价值观回归建筑本质,用高度安全而又造价不高的创新技术手段建造一座普通人买得起、用得起并极大有益于生命健康的“竖向城市”。“空中城市”极有助减少交通能耗和环境污染,因为人们可以“足不出户”就近办公、学习、生活。

this building is not built for landmark,but a livable small city.main factor:extremly safty,cheap,green.
