SUZHOU | Greenland Group Suzhou Center | 358m | 1175ft | 75 fl | U/C

FINAL RENDER











by SOM Chicago

Location: Wujiang CBD, Suzhou's 3rd skyscraper area.
http://suzhou.house.sina.com.cn/news...73730774.shtml
http://www.subaonet.com/html/wujiang...GFE770K66.html

About Wujiang masterplan. Greenland tower will be probably the only 200m+ tower. The rest of the plots seem to be <200m midrises.

One of the proposals for the main tower, rejected one. 325m.

Current proposal, and hopefully final:

I don´t see anything special about this, just a next boxy supertall I´d rather see some kind of organic design, which is beautiful and even ecologicaly and economicaly more sustainable

SOM Chicago wins competition to design the Wujiang Greenland Tower

The Chicago office of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) has announced their victory in an international competition to design the Greenland Group Suzhou Center in Wujiang, China. The 358-meter tower’s efficient split-core configuration demands a double-take, as the “curved, tapered form unifies the office, hotel and residential uses within a single volume.” More on ArchDaily.
