Kohn Pedersen Fox











Quote:
Founded in 1976, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF) is one of the world's pre-eminent design firms, providing master planning and architectural design services for clients in both the public and private sectors. KPF's diverse portfolio, which spans more than 35 countries, includes a wide range of projects from site and district master plans to mixed-use, hotel and residential complexes to civic and cultural buildings to academic and research facilities.
KPF's most significant work focuses on stitching mixed-use complexes into the urban fabrics of the world's leading metropolitan areas. These projects integrate leisure, commerce, housing, and landmark presence to produce vibrant, 24/7 environments, including Sydney's Chifley Tower, Shanghai's World Financial Center, Singapore's Marina Bay Financial Centre, Hong Kong's International Commerce Centre, New York City's Hudson Yards, and Tokyo's Roppongi Hills.

KPF proposal
The concept is “Crown Sydney: life with an edge”
The aim is to create an identity for Sydney’s third icon alongside the Harbour Bridge and Opera House
The design is influenced by yacht sails, the bridge itself and the Opera House
The lean of the building evokes nautical themes such as a ship’s prow or a heeling yacht

Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill













[QUOTE]Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG) is dedicated to the design of high-performance, energy-efficient architecture on an international scale. AS+GG's practice includes architecture, interior design, urban planning and sustainable design
Designers have experience in a wide range of building types, including tall towers, large-scale mixed-use complexes, corporate offices, exhibition and cultural facilities, civic and public spaces, hotel and residential developments, high-tech laboratory facilities and sustainable master plans. AS+GG was founded in 2006 by partners Adrian Smith, Gordon Gill and Robert Forest; today there are 100 employees in offices in Chicago and Beijing
AS+GG’s current work includes the Kingdom Tower in the Saudi Arabian city, Jeddah. Kingdom Tower will overtake Dubai’s Burj Khalifa as the world's tallest building. Adrian Smith was the architect for the Burj Kahlifa.

Quote:
AS+GG proposal
The building expression is based upon the elemental shapes found in the marine environment such as shells and molluscs
The shell form design also relates to the pre-1788 condition of the area which was used by Indigenous peoples as a source of shellfish and oysters
The middens or piles of discarded shells were used by colonial settlers as a source of lime for the production of concrete

Wilkinson Eyre













Quote:
Wilkinson Eyre Architects, twice winners of the prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize, is one of the UK’s leading architecture practices.
Its portfolio of bold, beautiful, intelligent architecture includes the Guangzhou International Finance Centre, currently the eighth tallest building in the world; the giant, sustainably-cooled conservatories for the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, the new Mary Rose Museum in the UK and the acclaimed temporary structure of the London 2012 Basketball Arena.

WEA proposal
WEA’s complex architectural form is derived from a sculptural form that is reminiscent of three twisting petals
The sculptural form of the building takes its inspiration from nature, being composed of organic forms without literal or direct reference. It is an abstract shape that has been developed to leverage the unique aspects of the site while maintaining the requirements of Crown’s brief in an elegant form
The shape of the upper and intermediate levels of the tower is designed to maximise views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House

I actually prefer something less outstanding for Sydney, this is more something for Melbourne/Gold Coast/Brisbane. But the First one is the best ( Kohn Pedersen Fox ) which features famous elements of Sydney, although the protrusion should be higher and on the other side.

Wilkinson Eyre is my favourite, but I would be happy with any of the three.

There wont be a helipad as part of the plans. Rather it was a skygarden.

You mean the mast of a yacht because that is what it is meant to represent?

KPF. The others look too fat.


Will this be the new tallest of Sydney?

All three are overscaled but the KPF entry inhabits that swooping envelope while still dialoging with the surrounding built environment. The others look like self-contained alien forms lacking in urbanity.

Response to User:Kiboko: Tallest in the Sydney CBD, yes, but in Parramatta, there will be a 306 m residential tower.

Also, I voted for the Adrian Smith / Gordon Gill design, but I wouldn't mind if the new tower were built to either of the other two designs.

Just adding a bit more to Jim's response, there's also another proposed tower in the CBD currently being developed by China's Greenland Group which should rise up to 260 metres. But if the Crown complex is to rise now at 250 metres then yes, it would be the CBD's tallest.

For me it's down to the KPF and Adrian Smith options. Ultimately, if they're looking for a "landmark" they should go with Smith.
