Could NIMBY's, NGO's ect be one reason that Hong Kong isn't building (so much): That the money and the developers simply moved their money across the border because there's less hassle? (I realize land prices, construction cost, expected returns also play in).

The dolphins and the environment are issues in Hong Kong....

Do people in Shenzhen even know or care that the last ones are grasping for their breath in the river at the time of writing?

I love skyscrapers but sometimes NIMBY's actually have a point.... (in a society where the will of the rich don't always trump the common good).

... Maybe a good balance is somewhere between Stuttgart and Shenzhen.

Just saw it on our flipboard and wanted to post it. You bet me to it

Choosing a crazier design like this also makes me more skeptical. It may not yet be final, yet looking at all the provided pictures the structure becomes more and more plausible. It looks doable, yet extremely expensive to do as well and you cannot really build the whole thing in phases with all these bridges. It is however also one of the best things that could have happened. The design is amazing and the heights stay the same with seemingly additional towers. When I am on computer i might do a full on analysis of the heights, that slices diagram picture certainly gives a good opportunity for that. I certainly do hope it can be done and is final, but more likely it will not be. We can only wait and see.

Looks way to concept to me, maybe its just an award for the best design and not the one there going to build.

Prized doesn't mean chosen.

How was it in former big scale competitions? Shanghai tower, canton observation tower, chow tai fook in guangzhou, ... have the now built or u/c designs won the first prize?

If you explore first tier architecture studios' websites you'll find prized unbuilt proposals easily So don't worry

Well, the plots are empty and ready, i was hoping we get a final design now, so they can finally start prep work and this design is amazing, just unlikely, but truly amazing.

Same article as above.
It's just to have some picture directly on the forum.

The proposal looks good, but I'd be interested to see an engineering breakdown of the structure. That K-shaped part looks like it'll cause a great deal of headache for the responsible structural engineers. You'd need one monster of a truss system to keep the diagonal elements from sagging, and the horisontal loads on the unfortunate "trunk" tower would be tremendous - requiring some hefty lateral bracing. The floor space of the two towers to the left of the picture would be reduced quite a bit by all the structural elements required to keep the building in shape.

Interesting, what type of architecture would that be categorised in? NeoBrutalism? (I just made this one up)

What's the point of showing these utopic designs instead of concentrating on something real which have chances to be built ?

This design is great and all but it would totally ruin shenzhen's skyline. Key word: "fit in"

Its a cool looking concept at least!




Reminds me a bit of a design MAD once made for a skyscraper in Chongqing.

Aside from the previously mentioned structual engineering standpoint, I think the biggest hurdle would be how much it would cost to construct a cluster that complex. They better expect tenants to pay a pretty penny for having a place in there if they want it to be economical. If they have any intention of building it that way.

As much as I love this design, I'm absolutely certain it will never happen. A structure of this kind is impossible to build, at least if you want to use it as a building.
