Interesting since a lot of these buildings are by overseas architects not copies. A lot of these projects have overseas companies attached to them. Unless you are saying that architects submitting their designs to the Chinese government are copying and/or stealing from themselves.

Just imagine if China didn't allow overseas architects to design their buildings. You would hear the cry of unfair trade or discrimination and then you can't lie about China copying designs.

I am excited while seeing so many beautiful mansions
but I am also uncertain if these buildings will form economic foam
Japan did in 80s last century
I hope the government pay more attention on enhancing the income of Chinese
So the steps of consumption can catch up that of investment
then our economy can increase healthfully

Design for B2-7 plot project in Zhujiang New City CBD. Just 56 floors, a little disappointing since that plot was supposed to be expecting a 300m+ skyscraper. Anyway, this is just a proposal.

Being the captial city of the most richest and properous province, Guangdong, in China, Guangzhou should have a strong finance to support this type of massive construction.

Plus, companies were allowed to rent condo or appartments as offices in Guangzhou before, recently a law has been setup to prohibit this situation. We should see a office booming in Guangzhou in the next several years.

Park Hyatt Guangzhou, 305m, 66fl

Goettsch Partners designs Park Hyatt Guangzhou mixed-use tower

Goettsch Partners has been commissioned by Guangzhou R&F Properties Co. to design a new 1,000-foot-tall mixed-use building in Guangzhou, China. The project totals 1,878,000 square feet and features a 180-key Park Hyatt hotel, 430,000 square feet of offices, 65,000 square feet of retail, 24 condominiums, 174 serviced apartments, and underground parking for 700 cars. The 66-storey building is located in the Zhujiang development, planned as Guangzhou’s new city center, near the Pearl River. The tight, two-acre site sits over a transit station at the intersection of two subway lines, with neighboring buildings that include the Grand Hyatt Guangzhou, also designed by Goettsch Partners; the city’s new opera house; the new Guangdong Museum; and what will be China’s tallest twin towers at more than 1,300 feet. The Park Hyatt tower is designed as a single volume that pinches in at the corners in relation to the changing programmatic functions stacked within. The field of staggered vertical strips on the fašade stretches and compresses like tendons in response to the varying floor-to-floor heights required for each distinct function. The approximately $150 million project is currently in the schematic design phase and is expected to be completed in 2010.

At the hub of Pearl River New City

KlingStubbins

KlingStubbins develops concept study for Guangzhou's central business district

Poly Real Estate Group recently contracted KlingStubbins to develop a concept for F2-2, a lot jointly owned with XianCun Village. The 141,000sq m development includes 35,000sq m of retail and 106,000sq m of speculative office space. Although the owners have decided to manage the retail and underground parking together, they want clearly defined and separated office towers so each can manage/rent/sell these office spaces independently. The “L” shape configuration formed by two towers becomes integral to the whole spatial sequence of Guangzhou’s “new axis.” This interlocked massing also reflects the cooperative relationship of two owners both symbolically and programmatically.
