What are the second 300m and the 480m? CITIC is 300m (on gaoloumi they say 312) and the Metro Station tower is 400m.

Do you think the circular structure is for the 480m Shewan Station Tower?

I've made an exquisite selection of more or less visionary proposals. On the website are much more

Masturbation is :

legal( non-criminal),
free( whenever or whatever you want) and
cheap ( no money involved).

The best way to practice sexuality.

That "breath" render was nice and looks practical i could see that being built although pic number 13 with the sharp angles is really good looking as well. Are these all in a design competition or what? I hope the ones i like get selected, fat chance though.

It's a competition set out to garner publicity for the area's development. Architect studios are merely throwing in their outlandish ideas to boost their portfolio, knowing full well that it will not materialise, chances are none of them are even paid anything for their work.

In reality, once the individual plots of land is sold to developers, the developer will consult with their architect of choice (behind closed doors). Bearing cost and efficiency in mind, the final design will most likely be a docile box shaped tower.

Thats sad. Smh, myb it will an elegant box shape group of towers. But if what you say is true then the designs will be pretty underwhelming

massing renders shown on gaoloumi by ckylyr, maybe there is a chance that the taller towers can reach 600+m






note the two finalized designs for the towers in the left corner, maybe these are the final designs for citic finance center and Shenzhen metro vanke mangrove bay project

this is massing models, not actual designs. only height and width is of interest here. And it seems like the tall towers are still proposed, which is amazing.
