Holl was selected by a six-member jury chaired by Arata Isozaki. Other winners including Morphosis, Coop Himmelb(l)au, Atelier FCJZ and Hans Hollein and MVRDV, will design the individual towers in the scheme.

Holl’s design is based on the concept of tropical skyscrapers as Shade Machines connected by a “Social Bracket”, a long horizontal element elevated above the plaza that gathers together the public programs of all for towers including, cafeterias, gyms, art galleries, auditoriums, and a cinema. The Social Bracket is topped with a green roof that collects and recycles grey water and storm water from the four towers.

The towers circular design maximizes interior space and views while minimizing the exterior envelope. Incorporated in each tower façade is a rotating sun-shading device with photovoltaic cells that is designed to harvest enough energy from the sun to provide cooling for all four towers.

Here are some more renders on the design. Looks like a pile of books stacked on top of each other.

I normally hate "over-designed" projects, but these ones are amazing!!

I love this design ! But I don't think that this is the project that has won the competition. The winning "4 towers in 1" is indeed from Steven Holl Architects but it is this project:

hmmm interesting. Could it be possible that he revised the designs? Because there are a number of sites published this month showing the "stacks of books" as the chosen design (which is also designed by Steven Holl Architects).

This is not possible is it? The base is way too narrow to support the weight on top.

I think you're right. Steven Holl's design is this one

which has won the competition.


Where as this one

was designed by MVRDV which has won second place.
