I wonder why they planning to build European buildings?

The design quality of the buildings will not as good and as beautiful as the original buildings in Europe. Since the most beautiful European building are built by royalist or imperial era. I don't think Tianjin can achieve the same high artistic quality. People will think this is just another copy.

People also saw classic European buildings as historical monuments. Build a new one, will not get high respect, most people will think it just stupid or some kind of Disneyland.

They should find another design.

I think they look nice. As long as they look nice, I don't care whether they are European or not, historic or not. Too bad nowadays people avoid building anything that slightly resembles any European buildings, in order not to be despised by peole like you. I say to hell with that. When Manhattan built those now "historic" lowrises, they were all copies by then, but nowadays many deem them valuable. I don't think many people would find it stupid. It is a good thing that you have an option to live in Disneyland. You can always choose not to if you don't want to.

The reason is Tianjin was a European Treaty Port, like Shanghai was during the 19th and early 20th centuries, with concessions from the various European (and Japanese) empires. There are many colonial era buildings extant still - this new European pastiche is keeping to the area's heritage, and an aim to distinguish sense of place.

i really hope that China will convert to green or nuclear energy as quick as possible so that they have clear skies. I understand the people pollution part, but a lot of the pollution comes from electricity generation. Tianjin, like many other cities in China, look absolutely wonderful and beautiful and classy. Nice updates

The Bank of America Tower in Xiaobailou will have 295.5m. We should open a thread as soon as they release some render.

I realized that Tianjin has become China's most active city concerning 200m+ projects. Please help me to add missing projects and tell me about any mistake you find. I know there are many other vague proposals, but I don't think we should include them by the moment.

Kalarch INC seek to inspire Tianjin to read through literary-themed library design


A new proposal has recently emerged; planning to radically redefine the appearance of the Tianjin Binhai Library, an existing four-storey building situated aside the Tianjin River, China. Devised by the minds of KDG group’s architectural team, the building is prospected to act as the pivotal feature on the waterfront, centralised amidst an outreaching area continuing on the extensive new development. At the beginning of the design process, KDG decided to seek inspiration inwards, whilst staying continually conscious of the eventual intended usage: “We looked for a dialogue between the façade and the content of the building, in this case, the books; this is why we were inspired by one of the greatest inventions of China, the process of paper-making.”

The façade design was developed in a rather unusual, relaxed, manner; namely, the playful examination of a piece of paper. The architects folded the paper in a way that loosely corresponded to the base, and layout, of the existing building, whilst examining the new contours being created; this led to the eventual visualisation of the new structure’s skin. When constructed, extensions will be administered in a perforated metal, which will allow for different angles and views of the library. Holes have been rendered into the façade, with an expressed visual metaphor for the importance of reading between the lines; these breaks in the overall external aesthetics, will supposedly force everybody to ‘read between the lines’ of the 2,100 sq m library itself.

The idea, behind renovations, was not only to redefine, to the benefit of the surrounding city, its extrinsic appearance, but also to have a positive influence on the environment inside the building. In order to achieve this approach, all angles of their frontispiece define two different types of spaces incorporated within: classrooms and study areas, positioned to provide users a sight-line to the sky; and lobbies and exhibition rooms, facing out onto the reflective surfaces of the river.

U.S. property developer builds financial plaza in Tianjin

TIANJIN, Dec. 12 (Xinhua) -- Construction on a U.S.-invested financial plaza began on Monday in north China's coastal city of Tianjin.

The construction of the plaza is being funded by Tishman Speyer, a U.S. real estate developer, at a cost of about 6 billion yuan (948 million U.S. dollars).

With a total area of 420,000 square meters, the plaza is designed to be a financial complex consisting of office buildings, hotels and relevant facilities, according to Katherine Farley, senior managing director of Tishman Speyer.

The building complex is composed of four towers and will become a local landmark upon its completion, said Farley, noting that the highest tower will be 350 meters tall.

"We are confident and positive about investment prospects in the Yujiapu district, where the plaza is located," said Farley.

Built in the heart of the Tianjin Binhai New Area, the Yujiapu Financial District is expected to become one of the world's largest financial zones over the next 10 years.

More than 300 enterprises have already registered in the district with total registered capital of over 70 billion yuan.

About 120 km southeast of Beijing, the Tianjin Binhai New Area is home to the largest port in north China.

Tunnel completed beneath Yellow River for China's south-north water diversion project

JINAN, Jan. 8 (Xinhua) -- A tunnel beneath the Yellow River, China's second longest, and related water gates and ditches have been completed for the eastern route of the country's giant south-north water diversion project.

Water diverted from the Yangtze, China's largest river, along the eastern route will flow through the tunnel to the parched northern provinces of Shandong and Hebei as well as Tianjin Municipality, the Shandong Provincial Construction Management Bureau of South-to-North Water Diversion Project said in a statement on Sunday.

Dubbed the "throat" of the eastern route, the 585-meter-long tunnel, 9 meters in diameter and up to 70 meters deep, will divert 442 million cubic meters of water annually.

Construction of the key project on the eastern route cost 613 million yuan (97.2 million U.S. dollars) and lasted four years.

The south-north water diversion project was first conceived by former Chinese leader Mao Zedong in 1952 and the State Council, or China's Cabinet, approved the ambitious project in December 2002 after debates that lasted nearly a half century.

The project, with an estimated total cost of 500 billion yuan, has aroused global concerns over land use, possible regional climate changes, environmental damage, impact on agriculture and human suffering in the wake of massive relocations.

The project plans to divert 44.8 billion cubic meters of water annually from the Yangtze through eastern, middle and western routes to relieve water shortages in north China by 2050.

The construction of the 1,467-km-long eastern route began in December 2002 and is expected to supply water to northern China by 2013.

Student Centre inspired by ancient tradition of inverted form with cantilevering floors

The traditional Chinese garden art consists in putting the simple unit of buildings into a vague or narrow space, at random, to result in a picturesque vision.

When looking at the building concept in Europe, the building reduces volume as it is built up. But in China, the building is constructed with the ground plan often smaller than the roof, which cantilevers beyond.

The Students Center is treated as a Chinese garden in the campus. Each level is built up and twists, forming cantilevered floors, which are orientated differently. As the building twists on its core, the floor slabs may touch each other with their neighbour's slabs at the same level. The corners of every flat may then be a balcony, a corridor, the shading louvers or the entrances canopy.

A suspended translucent belt in aluminum encloses the buildings as a fence, just as in a Chinese garden. This symbolic enclosure allows peoples to access freely to the building, and harmonises with the scale of the big concert hall beside.
