Jury for the “Shenzhen 4 Tower in 1” choose Coop Himmelb(l)au design

The jury for the “Shenzhen 4 Tower in 1” Competition chaired by Mr. Arata Isozaki, selected Coop Himmelb(l)au's design for Tower C, the new “Headquarter of China Insurance Group” as the winning scheme. Other participants include Morphosis, Steven Holl Architects, Hans Hollein, MVRDV and FCJZ Atelier.

The new “Headquarter of China Insurance Group” will be part of a lively business quarter in the heart of the Central District of Shenzhen made up of a carefully composed ensemble of unique, individual towers creating a landmark silhouette.

The project is a high-rise structure with a height of approximately 200 m with 49 storeys. The footprint area has the size of 40 by 40 m. The required program is distributed vertically. A clear separation of public and private functions is given. All public functions are organized in the base building while the office program is situated in the tower. Semi public program like meeting rooms, conference center, recreation areas and gardens are concentrated in the middle of the building. This zone is designed to create a pattern of meeting facilities, gardens and recreation areas for all employees and become spaces for an exchange of knowledge and creativity and a synergy of form and function.

The “Headquarter of China Insurance Group” is not only recognizable by its significant form but also by its façade. The design of the façade is driven by generation of energy. The second skin of the façade is shaped by climate conditions and inner functions. This skin includes photovoltaic cells to generate electricity and also cells to reduce excessive wind pressure, shade the sun and create multi media displays. Strategies employing the form of the building to assist natural ventilation together with the use of renewable energy sources (wind and solar power) assure an energy efficient design and reduce energy consumption and reliance on fossil fuel energy sources.

Great!

Wouah! I love it!
It seems to be placed just East of Shenzhen Stock Exchange that is currently being built. Am I right?
But when I'm looking on google earth it seems there's just not enough space.

Could someone show the floor layout of the construction site by drawing on a Google Earth Screenshot?

Thanks!

Steven Holl wins in Shenzhen

Shenzhen business district to be shaped by an all star cast




Steven Holl Architects has won the “4 in I” tower competition to design the master plan for the Futian business district in Shenzhen, China. Organized by the Shenzhen Planning Bureau, the charge is to create a unified urban plan and office complex around the new Shenzhen Stock Exchange Headquarters designed by OMA. 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.

Well, it's just a masterplan for now so the designs might change a lot for the final product.

China Guangdong Nuclear Power Holding Tower. 160m, 38 floors. By Aube Architects (Shenzhen).







传统商业办公综合体常以塔楼与裙房两大体块组合叠加的设计形式出现,这次我们尝试打破常规,裙房和北塔楼采用一体化设计,形体从基地北面起倾斜状向天空延展,提取企业标志白鹭的飞行姿态为造型元素;南面塔楼拔地而起,喻意如白鹭般一飞冲天,象征着企业的蒸蒸日上,建筑造型简练且意义深远。绿化在体块之间延续穿插,一年四季绿意盎然,全方位塑造核电集团清新、安全的新企业形象。


位 置:深南大道和彩田路交口处西北部
性 质:商业性办公
用地面积:1.01 Ha
建筑面积:18.85万M2
高 度:159.98米
层 数:38层
