It will be very interesting to see how it works out in reality... I wonder if the wind through thoose holes will create som kind of noice? The idea is great anyway, and we really need more buildings like this to help the enviroment

No, they have to choose the design first

PS: The renders are huge, sorry. I'm resizing them now.

its too bad that for pretty much every good proposal that gets approved ten more crap ones start construction..i mean some of the apartment blocks coming up on the edge of the city are just disgraceful

and theyre not exactly being very forceful with the new law abt no motorbikes in the city centre, theyre still motorbikes there and they were supposed to be banned a month ago

at least theyre beginning to try with the pollution problem, but in the rainy season its still getting really really bad, its ok right now with the winter cold but who knows how bad its gonna get this year

im rambling now...

i just wish the canton government but be more strict on which proposals they approve, u drive along on the highway and see incredibly well designed buildings, but then right alongside them there might be decrepid looking old apartment buildings then u look next to them and theyre building even more of them...

Hehe, I agree with you, however i think its part of guangzhous character! If every building would be perfect or everything aligned,uniform and clean, i think it would be really boring! And i wouldnt wanna live there, however they really need to improve on the enviroment...

Fantastic, guangzhou looks like the next hong kong, well the're pretty much neighbours anyway, probably already one giant metropolis.

but the scrapers look magnificent, ultra-modern western style buildings.

What do you mean by "western"? There is nothing like this in the "West" and the "West" is not the ultimate standard/ goal of modernisation.

China had highrise structures over 12f (pagodas) before any Western country did

I was in Guangzhou last month, I loved it. Was so glad to be there after spending a day in Shenzhen (which I hated, too many hookers and dealers).

Guangzhou is a really cool place

gz is a great place... when i first moved into the ZNC it was like a giant field... always wondered what it would be like as the new CBD
