Quote:
As building façades become more complex, new lighting technologies and solutions for their implementation become necessary. To accentuate the crystalline ridges on the façade of the Greenland Chengdu Tower, OVI worked with AS+GG to create lips along the ridges where LEDs could be hidden. In addition to aesthetic challenges, architects and architectural lighting designers have to take into consideration the maintenance and sustainability of these technologies. How will an LED bulb be replaced if it stops functioning, especially when it is hundreds of meters up in the air?
Well, this is confusing.. (I mean the architect bit..)

Hmm.. after zorg asked this question, I started thinking.. and.. let me explain myself first..
Greenland took over vast area in the east of Chengdu and most of it is covered with boring residential highrises except these CBeD plots, no one could answer me where exactly the tower is going to be built. I found this advert which marks the metro station (circuled in red) so it's pretty obvious where that plot is (blue arrow).

Then I started study that satellite image and realised that all those residentials
in the render (behind main plot)(blue square) are not going to fit in that plot..

Well that makes the main tower across the road

and that makes metro station in between 2 CBeD plots (apparently it was poorly marked on that advert) So sorry for misleading you, however the exact plot is also under preparation and very busy

This tower is awesome! It reminds me of the Hearst Tower, but has a more dominant look and not a cute, short one.

Pretty damn far from anything in the city.. It's in the same side as ICC but 5 metro stops (~7km) further east.. On nice sunny clear day you could see one from the other, but that doesn't happen too often here.. I made all skyscrapers' projects' map of Chengdu,, you can see it by yourself it's in my signature Chengdu skyscrapers (updated)

Chengdu Greenland Tower
Chengdu, China

FIRM Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture

TYPE Commercial › Office Retail
Hospitality + Sport › Hotel

YEAR 2018

At 468 meters tall, Chengdu Greenland Tower will produce the southwestern China region’s tallest building and the fourth-tallest in the nation.

Located in the center of Chengdu’s booming Dongcun district, the design was inspired by the unique ice mountain topography around Chengdu, which symbolizes the city’s growth and promising future. Like the mountain ridges reflecting the light of the sky and the valleys reflecting light from the earth, the iconic tower will perform as a light sculpture to diffuse light from 360 degrees, creating a connection between sky and earth.

The design for the complex—including the main tower, two small towers and six-story podium, with a total building area of 395,305 sm—interprets and integrates Chengdu’s urban structure, local culture and Chinese traditional feng shui theory in a modern form.

Its goal is to create a comfortable garden city environment with convenient traffic pattern for vehicular, pedestrian and metro transportation.

The architecture and structure marry perfectly. The design fully considers the structural requirements of supertall buildings in a high seismic zone, using a geometrical plan, a tapered form and a high-performance damper bracing system to ensure the structure’s stability and efficiency. The building façade, MEP and other systems are designed with high-efficiency sustainability features, creating a new generation of the high-performance supertall building.

The main tower consists of 120,000 sm Class A office space in the lower zone, a 51,000 sm luxury hotel in the middle zone, and 42,000 sm of CEO suites in the high zone. Two small towers, at 116 m and 147 m, respectively, accommodate high-end SOHO apartments. The podium includes 14,000 sm of retail, a 16,000 sm conference center with bridge connection to the main tower, and an 8,000 sm exhibition center. There is also a roof garden with 360-degree views of the city.

Original 1680 × 840


Original 1680 × 2376











I guess Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill is in charge of this tower and AEDAS is in charge of master plan.. ?
