Because Jaeger and Partner visited Hong Kong and got inspired maybe? The design is nice, but could certainly have been a bit more creative and not looking like a ICC-ripoff.

Jaeger and Partner embrace urban Guangzhou for their expansive headquarter designs, whilst keeping an eye on efficiency


The Guangfa Securities Headquarter, a 308m tall, class-A, high-rise office building, will serve as the new landmark for the eastern portion of Guangzhou’s new CBD. Its orientation is rotated slightly from the dominating orthogonal grid of the surrounding area, to mark the site as a transformational pivot point of the urban fabric and expresses the building’s obelisk-like, sculptural character. As a counterpoint to the linear order of the CBD, it embraces the expansive park within a suspenseful relationship and enhances its connection to the heart of the city. A 24m tall podium building, complementing the tower, adds human scale to the plaza and balances the overall composition of volumes. The podium building’s widely cantilevering shape acts as a gate, making a visual connection to the park.

The landscape design includes an expansive pool which extends the tower’s shape to appear continuing under the surface, while providing a cool micro climate for the plaza. The tower is divided horizontally into two zones. The upper part accommodates the Headquarter offices of Guangfa Securities, while the lower portion offers tenant space for companies in the financial industry. The tower core employs a cross corridor which offers a wide variety of layouts for circulation and programme. The headquarter offices are served by a sky lobby, which is conveniently accessible through a sophisticated vertical circulation strategy. This concept ensures a high level of floor plan efficiency as it allows for stacking elevator groups on top of each other in the same shafts, thus reducing the size of the core significantly.

The two vertical zones are expressed by repeating the motif of a tapering base at the particular bottom of each portion. In the upper part, the recess appears to be carved out behind a transparent skin, generating the impression of a building inside the building. The façade’s overall appearance gives the impression of a membrane being tautly stretched between the slender corner columns. In an expressive sensual manner, particular parts of the building are pronounced by sculptural forms emerging from the fins. The unitised façade system combines Low-E insulated glazing, a vertical sun shading system, solar active layers covering the spandrels as well as parts of the glazing and facilitates decentralised natural ventilation. The Guangfa Headquarter Tower is currently going through the schematic design approval process and is scheduled to begin construction in spring 2012.

'Lucky' coin-inspired structure on Pearl River


Construction is pushing on with rapid pace at a significant waterside scheme on the Pearl River, Guangzhou, designed by Italian architect Joseph di Pasquale for the Guangdong Plastics Exchange. The 33-storey commercial facility has been inspired by the jade Bi Disks synonymous with rank and moral excellence throughout Chinese history and chief engineer on the project, Wang Zhanshan, has detailed: “It’s a real fusion of Western and Chinese design. The distinctive feature of the building is that it is shaped like an old Chinese jade or a waterwheel and also has good feng shui for attracting fortune. A golden coin, jade or waterwheel alongside the river means luck to Cantonese: Water brings money.”

The use of jade Bi Disks dates back to the Neolithic period, with the circular items becoming gradually more ornate as time progressed. Images of deities or intricately patterned engravings grace the majority of Bi Disks which were given as gifts to the elite and often buried with them. The symbolism ingrained in this tradition has been carried through to modern times, with the reverse of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Medals reminiscent of a Bi Disk. Once completed, the building will be used as a warehouse, public information space and research centre.

Joseph di Pasquale’s practice, AM Progetti, may have taken inspiration from a deep-rooted Chinese tradition, but as their final concept grows closer to realisation, so the cloud of critique that surrounds it has blackened. Shenzhen Daily ran a piece last week entitled ‘Thumbs down for “lucky” office in GZ’ which criticised the 1bn Yuan scheme, quoting a disappointed internet reviewer who drew parallels between the GDPE Landmark Building and ‘the ugly Fangyuan Building in Shenyang’. The Telegraph also questioned the design, suggesting that locals resent the effect that the structure could have on their skyline, again drawing links to the Fangyuan Building.

When completed - allegedly by the end of 2012 - the cylindrical building will reach 138m in height with a 47m-diameter hole in the centre. The brief provided to AM Progetti demanded a ‘landmark’ building that would stay in the hearts and minds of visitors to the Pearl River whilst creating a strong link between the building and town through the integration of local traditions. As a result of detailed research and consideration, the architects decided to incorporate ‘the traditions of the Nanyue King we visited in the Museum of Nanyue King Tomb Treasures in Guangzhou’. They continue: “We consider the shape of the double jade disk as the strongest shape inspiration and the perfect starting point for the GDPE Landmark Building design.” The School of Architecture of South China University of Technology also collaborated on the design.

海珠橋封閉待修 廣州大塞車
http://paper.wenweipo.com
2012-02-28



Brief synopsis : Guangzhou's Haizhu Bridge will close for renovations starting on the 27th. It is the most important bridge that crosses the Pearl River in the city.

 香港文匯報訊(記者 敖敏輝 廣州報道)在周末試封閉兩天後,年近「八旬」的廣州第一橋海珠橋,27日正式封閉,迎接明日開始的大修。由於海珠橋是連接珠江兩岸最重要的過江樞紐,大橋的封閉令兩岸車輛及行人往來極為不便,多數路段在高峰時期出現了長距離擁堵的現象。據悉,由於私家車及公交行車不得不繞行,廣州城西起芳村隧道,東至廣州大道甚至華南快速都出現不同程度的交通擁堵,主城區一半以上的交通路段受影響。而連接珠江兩岸的廣州地鐵二號線,人流暴增,受此影響,不少上班族遲到。

 廣州地鐵二號線連接越秀區和海珠區,並輻射番禺和荔灣區,是重要的跨江通道。早上7時15分,記者從昌崗站搭乘地鐵趕往海珠廣場,與往日相比,人流高峰明顯提前,且旅客量大大增加。據地鐵工作人員介紹,由於海珠橋封閉,選擇搭乘地鐵上班的市民明顯多於往日。市民王小姐在昌崗站候車,等了3趟才能上車。記者前往海珠廣場,亦因人流過多,等候10多分鐘才得以上車。

人民橋車龍延綿數公里

 7時40分,記者在海珠橋上看到,南北橋頭都已封閉,主幹道已無車輛通行,而人行道及自行車道仍有大量市民通過。海珠橋無法通行,海珠橋兩端的濱江路及沿江中路,車流量大增,行車十分緩慢。廣州解放橋是距離海珠橋最近的一座過江橋樑,海珠橋封閉,南往北方向江南大道、南華東路、寶崗大道及其西邊的來車,都湧到了解放橋上橋位,南往北方向車流非常緩慢。現場多位交警在維持秩序,但效果並不明顯。

 人民橋是越秀區與海珠區靠西部的跨江大橋,8時左右,南往北方向已經排起了長長的車龍,龍尾一直排到數公里外的洪德路。由於人民橋南往北方向一向存在「雙車道切換成單車道」的交通瓶頸,當日塞車情況更為嚴重。受此影響,洪德路至鳳凰新村路段昌崗立交落橋處行車十分緩慢。

過廣州大橋多花20分鐘

 海珠橋東邊的江灣橋,也是海珠區前往越秀、天河的要道。記者在8時30分看到,大橋仍處於堵塞狀態,由於停留時間長,不少趕著上班的人不停按喇叭。

 據悉,海珠橋封閉後,大橋附近22條公交線路不得不繞行其他橋樑及地段,加劇了周邊交通擁堵程度。由於線路更改,公交公司不得不派員指引市民乘車。儘管如此,仍有大量市民出行時間增加,更有不少人因此上班遲到。而廣州輪渡公司也加大過江渡輪的頻率。但由於過江後仍需接駁其他交通工具,所以沒有多少市民改坐輪渡。

 記者獲悉,不僅海珠橋周邊,由於車輛分流,廣州主城區西部進城主要通道的芳村隧道已出現擁堵的現象。「我平日駕車過廣州大橋,本已擁堵,今天海珠橋封閉了,過橋的時間比平時多了20多分鐘。」私家車主郝先生告訴記者。

廣州海珠橋明起
封閉大修年半

2012年02月26日 (08:30 pm)


Synopsis : Haizhu Bridge was built in 1933 and was China's first steel bridge. The renovation works will take a year and a half. The entire bridge will be closed to traffic, affecting 22 bus routes. But the pedestrian passages on both sides of the bridge will remain open.

Many Guangzhou residents have flocked to take photos of the bridge following news of the renovation closure.


已有79年歷史的廣州海珠橋將於明日起正式封閉,進行為期年半的大修工程,期間全橋將禁止行車,22條巴士路線需要改道,但橋的兩邊人路則可正常通行。

海珠橋建於1933年,是中國第一座鋼橋,得知封閉的消息後,不少廣州市民專程到海珠橋拍照留念。

China Trade Hub Guangzhou Booms as New District Rises From Dirt
By Kelvin Wong - Mar 15, 2012 12:01 AM GMT+0800
Bloomberg

Guangzhou, a trading hub for China since the Ming Dynasty in the 16th century, is in the midst of the biggest commercial real estate boom in its history.

Developers including Guangzhou R&F Properties Co. (2777) and Poly Real Estate Group Co. (600048) plan to add more than 1.7 million square meters (18.3 million square feet) of prime office space to the city this year -- enough for about 120,000 workers. Almost 90 percent of the new space will be built in Zhujiang Xincheng, a zone twice the size of the City of London that Guangzhou’s government earmarked as its new central business district almost a decade ago, according to Cushman & Wakefield Inc.

“Back in 2004, out there it was all just dirt,” said Adrian Chan, assistant to the chairman at Guangzhou R&F, which has completed five office projects in the area since then, including the 160,000-square-meter, 54-story R&F Center, where the interview took place. “Today, it turns out to be a good winner.”

Guangzhou R&F and its rivals will be seeking to fill the space at a time of slowing economic growth, with the nation’s expansion target for 2012 this month set at 7.5 percent, down from an 8 percent goal in place since 2005. China last week reported its biggest trade deficit in at least 22 years, the weakest January-February factory-production gain since 2009, and retail sales that trailed the median of economist estimates.

The new developments may push the prime office vacancy rate in the city to above 20 percent by 2015, from 12 percent now, according to Chicago-based Jones Lang LaSalle Inc.

“With that amount of new supply coming in, I don’t care how fast the absorption rate is, it will pull up vacancy,” said Alvin Lau, managing director for Southern China at CBRE Group Inc. “And if there isn’t enough demand, then rents will fall, though I don’t think there’ll be a crash.”
Opium Trade

Guangzhou, named Canton by Portuguese traders in the 16th century, hosts the China Import and Export Fair, or Canton Fair, in April every year. In the 19th century, British traders imported opium into China through the city until the Chinese government sought to ban it, triggering the Opium War that resulted in the ceding of Hong Kong.

Guangzhou’s government in 2003 decided to turn the Zhujiang Xincheng district into a financial center rivaling Shanghai and Shenzhen. That was followed two years later by a 200 billion yuan ($32 billion) plan to upgrade the whole city’s infrastructure.

GM, Tesco

While finance firms didn’t respond, export and domestic- industrial companies have. The 6.6 square kilometer-district features the regional headquarters of China Mobile Ltd., the world’s biggest phone carrier by users, General Motors Co., the largest foreign automaker in China, and Tesco Plc, the U.K.’s biggest retailer.

“It was never going to work as Guangzhou doesn’t even have a capital market,” said Eric Lam, managing director for Southern China at property adviser Colliers International. “The ones who ended up here are the South China or regional headquarters of companies, not banks. At the end it was the market that directed the district’s positioning.”

Even with the new office supply, Lam said rents in top tier buildings will rise because of “very strong” demand.

Average monthly rent at Zhujiang Xincheng was 279 yuan per square meter in the fourth quarter, compared with 255 yuan a square meter at Tianhe, Guangzhou’s former central business district, New York-based Cushman said. That compares with 507 yuan in Beijing and 414 yuan in Shanghai.

Trading Hub

China will overtake the U.S. as the world’s biggest trading nation by 2016 as intra-Asia commerce and rising demand from emerging markets boosts shipments, according to a report from HSBC Holdings Plc last month.

“The government has always wanted to create a hub for trade operators,” said Donald Choi, managing director of Hong Kong-based Nan Fung Development Ltd., which is spending 6 billion yuan building commercial projects in the city. “So everything here, the excellent infrastructure, the policies, are all being backed by the government.”

Zhujiang Xincheng, which means Pearl River New Town in Mandarin, is home to the Guangzhou Opera House, the biggest performing center in Southern China, and the 1,969-foot Canton Tower, an observation tower that was the world’s tallest when it was completed in 2010.

Guangzhou, with a population of more than 12 million, is China’s third-largest city behind Shanghai and Beijing and is the capital of the Guangdong province. Nearby Foshan was identified by the World Health Organization as the probable source of outbreak of the 2003 Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome epidemic, or SARS.

Recovery Project

While its economy was recovering from that outbreak, Guangzhou’s government began awarding land in Zhujiang Xincheng to developers including Guangzhou R&F, with the aim of building a financial hub that could replace the city’s existing downtown area of Tianhe.

To encourage investment from developers, Guangzhou, a two- hour train ride north of Hong Kong, went on to spend about 200 billion yuan to build roads and subways in Zhujiang Xincheng. That includes a nine-stop, 4-kilometer long automated people mover similar to the light-rail system in Singapore.

“If some guys say they’re going to put in $10 and ask you to put in only $2, that’s a good bargain,” said Guangzhou R&F’s Chan. “They were drilling all these subways and roads and they ask whether you want to be part of this. And we said OK, though back then it was a pretty big risk to take.”

Zhujiang Xincheng

Investment in real estate in Guangzhou jumped about 40 percent last year, according to estimates by Cushman. Guangzhou’s gross domestic product grew 11 percent in 2011 to 1.24 trillion yuan, ranking it third among all Chinese cities, according to the city government’s website.

Guangzhou heeded central government calls in late 2010 to restrict foreigners from buying homes and offices in the city. It said this month the curbs on foreigners purchasing retail real estate remained in place, according to Zhai Zhongqi, a Centaline Property Agency Ltd. analyst based in the city.

Almost 80 percent of the 2.8 million square meters of prime office space already under construction in Guangzhou is at Zhujiang Xincheng, Cushman said. The district had prime office space of about 1.2 million square meters at the end of 2011, over 50 percent more than the Tianhe district.

“If domestic companies’ expansion continues, rental growth will probably be stable over the next few years,” said Marcos Chan, head of research for Greater Pearl River Delta at Jones Lang, the world’s second-biggest commercial broker by market value. “We’re talking about a market that hasn’t seen anything like this before. So when the new buildings are all in place, we may see a boom like what happening in Beijing last year.”

Beijing’s central business district’s prime office rent surged 73 percent in 2011 to be Asia’s third most-expensive office market after Hong Kong and Tokyo, according to Cushman.

Supply Glut

Government-led commercial districts in some of China’s second-tier cities, including Chengdu and Hangzhou, “may face a market supply glut” because of over-building fueled by developers wanting to diversify from residential development, according to Cushman.

The expectation of growing demand for office space in Zhujiang Xincheng has prompted the government to plan the development of another business district in Guangzhou’s Pazhou, the district where the venue of the Canton Fair is. Companies including Nan Fung are building at least 4.5 million square meters of commercial space there in addition to the 335,000 square meters already there.

“Guangzhou’s market for convention and exhibition is still developing,” said Nan Fung’s Choi. “It’s the center of trading of southern China and we’re very confident in its future.”

The company, one of Hong Kong’s two biggest closely held builders, is investing at least HK$6 billion ($773 million) building a hotel, exhibition venue, and an office building in the district.

“The next five years in Pazhou will be like Zhujiang Xincheng five years ago,” said Colliers’ Lam. “At the moment there’ll still land available, but that’ll change fast.”

I dont know who translated this, but the facts are just SO TOTALLY WRONG. The all-steel Waibaidu Bridge in Shanghai was opened in 1908. This was clearly the first steel bridge in China. Shanghai was first.

10 March by me. We went from Shenzhen to Guangzhou to visit some sites of our projects, including the East Tower, HongCheng and LinHe Cun.

Those are the ones from HongCheng Plaza.

You just have to turn one page back to see the renderings of HongCheng Plaza.

China Southern Airport City

http://www.archdaily.com/221718/chin...y-woods-bagot/



Serving Guangzhou, China as a distinctive emblem of China Southern Airlines’ global leadership, the winning proposal by Woods Bagot is a bold reinterpretation of the corporate campus model. A 400-hectare, mixed-use development, the three-precinct master plan integrates business, manufacturing, residential, and cultural amenities within a comprehensive open space network that supports recreational opportunity and bolsters ecological vitality. More images and architects’ description after the break.



The design establishes a sweeping physical form that unifies the Airport City site—comprising two wing-shaped parcels bisected by a major highway—and presents a legible identity that is visible from arriving and departing planes. Within this landscape, landmark buildings, parks, lakes and other features define a series of programmatic “neighborhoods” that provide a sense of order and wayfinding at the human scale.



The master plan organizes the neighborhoods into three precincts. Business, cultural, and entertainment uses as well as Southern Airlines University define the central precinct, creating a distinct heart that bridges the highway. Here, a bend in the Liuxi River naturally highlights the project’s centerpiece: an executive complex including offices, a five-star hotel and VIP club overlooking an expansive lake. Manufacturing, operations and research facilities form a second precinct to the northwest while residential and lifestyle neighborhoods compose the third precinct along the riverfront.



The landscape architectural and ecological concept—designed in close collaboration with Hargreaves Associates and Sherwood Design Engineers—overlays bold sculptural landforms with a series of contemporary urban, academic and residential landscapes. Each landscape is rendered with a unique indigenous flowering tree to further distinguish the Airport City neighborhoods and celebrate the rich Chinese garden palette. The landforms buffer the freeway and enhance views to the riverfront, while restoration zones, including a new freshwater wetlands and necklace of lakes, serve to cleanse stormwater and repair the site ecology.

Richard Marshall, Joint CEO/Director of Urban Design at Woods Bagot: “This has been a tremendously rewarding process bringing together the best talent from our London, San Francisco, Hong Kong and Beijing studios and our partners at Hargreaves Associates and Sherwood Design Engineers. China Southern Airlines’ vision for a new district that embodies its global leadership and supports ongoing innovation afforded an opportunity to really advance our thinking about the connections between economy, ecology and culture. We look forward to our continued collaboration.”

Guangzhou Daily Group Culture Center / IAPA

IAPA shared with us their proposal for the Guangzhou Daily Group of Culture Center, a large multi-purpose building complex, which recently won the excellence award in the International Architecture Design Competition. The center, which includes office, exhibition, commercial, hotel, culture, and service space, creates a building complex with a vivid image, unique content and regional cultural features. http://www.archdaily.com/239162/guan...e-center-iapa/
