SHENZHEN | Guosen Securities Tower | 228m | 748ft | 50 fl | U/C

Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas won the “International Schematic Design Competition of Shenzhen Guosen Securities Tower”

Tue , 2 November 2010 The project by Studio Fuksas is born from the intention to create a new concept of vertical public space for the tower. A three-dimensional void will be arranged along the facades giving a dynamic image to the building and creating different public scenarios for the offices.
The design of the void shape explores the relation between the podium and the vertical section of the tower with diagonals spaces and fluxes that create a vertical tension in the full height of the tower.
Guosen Tower’s distinctive façade atrium, with an energizing and dynamic form, will establish a new symbol for the CBD skyline. With its 200m height space, the tridimensional atrium will be the highest lobby in the Shenzhen. The public spaces, lobbies and Sky-Gardens are interconnected along the tridimensional void of the atrium creating a stream of light, images and activity. The building itself will be symbolically open to the city along the great façade atrium.

I've uploaded everything there is to know (bigger renderings + exact location) about this building here
http://urbika.com/projects/view/4111...-securities-to

This skyscraper with a zig-zag channel cut into the facade is the winning design by Italian architects Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas in a competition to design a new office building for Shenzhen.

The project is born from the intention to create a new concept of vertical public space for the tower. A three-dimensional void will be arranged along the facades giving a dynamic image to the building and creating different public scenarios for the offices. The design of the void shape explores the relation between the podium and the vertical section of the tower with diagonals spaces and fluxes that create a vertical tension in the full height of the tower.

Guosen Tower’s distinctive façade atrium, with an energizing and dynamic form, will establish a new symbol for the CBD skyline. With its 200m height space, the tridimensional atrium will be the highest lobby in the Shenzhen. The public spaces, lobbies and Sky-Gardens are interconnected along the tridimensional void of the atrium creating a stream of light, images and activity. The building itself will be symbolically open to the city along the great façade atrium.

Guosen Tower design integrates the values of connectivity and trade fluxes of Shenzhen CBD into an innovative vision for a XXI century tower. Integrated in the complex skyline of the CDB, Guosen tower will respond with a pure external glass volume. All the complexity happens in the internal network of public spaces that are placed strategically in the facades taking advantage of the views and visibility according to the urban context. The upper levels of the building include the office complex of Guosen Securities, with an access highlighted by a triple height sky lobby. The very top levels are dedicated to the executive’s offices, including a sky garden and club room levels that offer a spectacular 360-degree panorama across Shenzhen CBD. Guosen Tower will be the first ecological tall building in Shenzhen with an instantly recognizable image into the city skyline.

Archdaily and several other magazines have recently written about Guosen Securities Tower by MVRDV. This is a proposal that lost the competition
the autumn of 2010.

TP 485 Guosen Securities Tower / MVRDV
The new headquarters building for the Guosen Securities Corporation in Shenzhen, China, is to be the new symbol for the dynamic corporation that
needs to be energy efficient and a pleasurable working environment in the new century. The TP 485 Guosen Securities Tower by MVRDV is a
project driven by the creation of good views and direct daylight for every worker in a compact floor plan of 1849m2 where no workplace is further
than 11 meters away from the façade. Stacking these floors leads to a 204 meter tall tower with a square floor plan and an elegant, slender
volume.

The edges of each floor plate have been folded down with an angle of 35 to 55 degrees creating shadow for the floor below and reducing the
cooling demand of the building. Large glass fronts connect these louvers, offering the office workers excellent views of the surrounding cityscape.
The louvers vary in size according to the orientation; on the north side they are small whilst at the south side they are larger. The angle of the
louvers allows for the addition of solar cells and reduces the energy demand of the building by 33 %. The louvers are also used for water collection
to feed the grey water circuit. A lengthy water pipe system runs invisibly through the façade collecting the heat of the solar cells to heat up water.

Despite being functional, the louvers also create an identity for the tower which resembles a giant Chinese lantern. At the collective parts of the
building the louvers are lifted to allow for a larger glass front. The main entrance, the restaurant, the conference centre are clearly recognizable
and offer double ceiling heights.

The building fits seamlessly into the urban surrounding; all sides of the ground floor have a commercial plinth or glass facades that connect inside
and outside. The low rise volume next to the tower holds a shopping centre and a conference centre. Underneath the building a tunnel offers
pedestrian access to a nearby metro station. At the top of the tower, the double high executive lounge is situated. The façade has been opened
to create a panoramic view towards Hong Kong Bay. On two places in the tower, both in the top and in the lower section, two collective double
height spaces have been created. They are designed as small amphitheatres that can be used for conferences and gatherings. They have
terraced seating that allow for uninterrupted views over the city.

Excavation supposed to start this month (I am working on this project quite a while now). Let's see if they keep up with the schedule. Can't wait to see some progress on site.
