aik, so hard so many things to consider. Whatever they decide they definitely need something that will stand the test of time, for such an iconic site, what some time in the future may even be the most iconic site for the most iconic city in the world.

1. For example this design will be utterly nondescript in a few years time, as there are so many similar looking towers round the world. Very conventional, liable to age. No impact, no delineation from the rest of the city, this seems the cheapest option. However it does have the most attention to the mooring facilities compared to all the other schemes:





On closer inspection it is a sleek design, with great colour - but the rest of the complex is still too variant in its styles, it appears as various different developments rather than the one - including the bridges. This will make the peninsular tip lose its status, as it appears the same as any other part of the cityscape:





2. This has great impact, with its bold colour, symmetry and size.



However the shape is conventionally displeasing and monolithic, although daring. This may turn out to be classed as ugly in the future, especially if the cantilever design technology becomes commonplace, and the colour seen as tacky:



and it jars with the rest of the cityscape in a bad rather than good way:




3. This has dramatic mooring for the boats (whereas other schemes don't have any plans even for mooring changes) - imagine your boat docking up to this as a terminal:





- ^however, the asymmetrically cut towers is a motif all over architecture at the moment, this will date it easily in the future. The complex of buildings behind are of random massing and styles they seem not part of the same scheme.




4. This makes best impact incorporating the base building, the main tower is also a classic pleasing shape:



with a wonderful skybridge - although once again, the towers are slightly dated (imagine them without the lighting)




and the mooring leaves alot to be desired Also the intrusion of other buildings behind into the trio of towers breaks up the relationship and the formality, it almost seems there is one tower in this design, not three. Other than the skybridge the landscaping is surprisingly conventional, and it seems with opportunities missed:





5. This is a nice design for the river frontage, but it will get rid of the openness and space, and sense of scale when approaching or entering landfall.
Its more constricting, and walls off the interaction between water and land:




the towers design may be a little too retro, and there seems less thought to streetlevel interaction:






6. This has got best impact groundwise- and has a stab at becoming the ultimate Courbousien icon of dramatic scale and space, and the steps brings to mind pyramids - the ascension to the centre of a place



and the towers have impact too in their grandisoity x4, formality and what is a classically pleasing shape.




however approaching from the other direction, is the design perhaps a little too conventional? the towers merging with the rest of the city's skyscrapers, losing impact. Also the ship mooring appears unchanged, a wasted opportunity.

7. This is a good and standout design, pushing the envelope on ground level as well as skylevel:




however its lack of height and the way it masses means it will merge with the rest of the city in a way that loses its impact. It may very well be overshadowed by taller towers behind and thus become underwhelming:





8. This has great groundlevel work, fully exploiting the shape and height of the site rather than trying to compromise around it. Jutting viewpoints, connective stairs and spaces, abundant greenery - yet all with a harmonised design:





although the boat mooring is possibly a little blank, the towers although great designs, lack impact or definition on the skyline






9. This design, although with Chinese references (tangrammatic motifs), is too mismashed in style and appears confused. The massing also is squat and overpowering - becoming ugly.




10. This is just too conventional, and pushes no boundaries. The only impact it has is the symmetry and the stacked box effect of the side buildings, but even then there will be better buildings and complexes in Chongqing that will make this iconic site seem wasted. The green glass is also quite dated already:





11. This ticks the boxes for the icon status of the site - the 'look at me' sculptural effect, and symmetry incorporated:



However the base (and spire) is dated (90s looking):



and the side towers, from groundlevel will compete in height and massing, so the central tower loses its impact. It also starts to resemble the Burj Dubai from this angle:






12. And this is the most iconic, with a vision for the future. What the future will make of it remains to be seen:




This has real X Factor, with great groundwork too and spaces







However the one thing it misses, is the water interaction and any change whatsoever to the current mooring facilities. Also unbelievably, it makes no opportunity to use the peninsular tip in any way. The water, tip and mooring are completely cut off, as if a city wall:

In short, to summarise it would be a choice between two very strong schemes imo.



(12) This future forward scheme, but greater interaction with the water and using the shape of the site desperately needed:








(6) and this a conventionally pleasing design, but with drama making full use of the unconventional site and the impact of having 4 formally identical towers:

Well, well. Here it comes Chongqing's newest supertall project, designedy MAD Studio.

3 proposals, all of them look clearly taller than 400m.
Proposal 1.






Proposal 2




Proposal 3






Proposal 1 is one of the ugliest things I've seen in my life, sorry.
Proposal 2 looks OK.
Proposal 3 looks so so, a little overdesigned.

Amazing city!

The first post is very well organized.

Still can't believe the rapid pace at which Chinese cities have grown and are growing. Its almost unbelievable.

I think this one is the most realistic solution for this moment. Nice interaction with surrounding space, calming down an anxious urban entity, easy and cheap to construct...





Although, this one is my fav.

I hadn't read the spliff fairy's comments till now. I fully agree with you in everything you said about the proposals.

Another project for Jiangbei New City CBD. Casin Jiangbei City Project. Developed by Casin Group (Chongqing). I'm not sure, but this one is probably next to SOM's boxes.
