Himalayas Center, Shanghai, China
Monday 24 Nov 2008


Ain’t no mountain high enough

Shanghai’s Himalayas Center design unveiled

The concept for Shanghai’s new cultural and business complex, Himalayas Center, was unveiled at the recent China International Travel Mart 2008. The RMB 2.4 billion project is situated in rapidly developing zone Pudong; its 2010 opening is timed to coincide with the World Expo Shanghai 2010.

The project, which the developer Zendai Group touts as an ‘Archisculptural Masterpiece for 21st century China’, was helmed by Arata Isozaki. The Japanese architect is known for his work on the Barcelona Olympics Stadium and Los Angeles Museum of Modern Art. For the Himalayas Center, Isozaki created soft curves of an “organic forest” contained within the hard, symmetrical lines of “crystalline cubes”. In the “forest” section, large expanses of irregularly-shaped holes are carved out of the walls, the walls are unevenly structured, thereby creating a sense of freedom in movement around the area. Contemplative and passive activities are housed here where the facilities include Zendai Museum of Art and DaGuan Theatre. On the other hand, the cubes contain facilities that will either encourage high loading or much interactivity, such as Zendai Hotel Yin, and Himalayas Creative Complex/Museum Zone.

The hotel tower which contains two hotels — Zendai Hotel Yin and Zendai Art Hotel — is a noteworthy aspect of the complex. Both hotels were designed by London-based interior designer Khuan Chew, whose credits include Dubai’s landmark hotel Burj Al Arab and Sofitel London Heathrow. Zendai Hotel Yin was conceptualised as a boutique-style ‘city retreat’ while the five-star Zendai Art Hotel will feature over 300 rooms.

Zendai Hotel Yin, which will occupy the top four floors of the hotel tower, according to traditional Chinese fengshui and Luban. The hotel’s highlight will be a traditional Chinese teahouse done with a modern twist. Not only will it feature daily performances, it will also provide books on Chinese history and culture. Zendai Art Hotel will be a business hotel and occupy the first 14 floors of the tower.

Tallest Building in China Breaks Ground
Design Completes Super-Tall District, Showcases Sustainable Public Space

SHANGHAI–Groundbreaking ceremonies held today mark the start of construction on Shanghai Tower. The 632-meter building designed by Gensler, a leading global architectural design firm, advances sustainable design strategies and gives prominence to public spaces. The Shanghai Tower Construction & Development Co., Ltd., is the project’s developer. Thornton Tomasetti structural engineers, Cosentini Associates mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineers and the Architectural Design and Research Institute of Tongji University as the Local Design Institute will support Gensler. The development is slated for completion in 2014.

Shanghai Tower is located in the Luijiazui Finance and Trade Zone, an area of Shanghai that was farmland eighteen years ago. The district is poised to become China’s first super-tall district, as Shanghai Tower rises to complete a trio of towers including the adjacent Jin Mao Tower and Shanghai World Financial Center (WFC). Together, these three will form a new icon on Shanghai’s skyline. While the design of the Jin Mao Tower pays homage to China’s past, and the WFC’s design signifies China’s recent economic growth, Shanghai Tower’s design is a beacon of China’s future.

“This tower is symbolic of a nation whose future is filled with limitless opportunities,” said Qingwei Kong, President of Shanghai Tower Construction & Development Co., Ltd. “With Shanghai Tower we celebrate not only China’s economic success and increasing connection to the global community, but also our company’s commitment to developing properties that demonstrate the highest, noblest and most exquisite design achievements possible.”

Shanghai Tower will house Class-A office space, retail, a luxury hotel and cultural venues. The uppermost floors will feature the world’s highest non-enclosed observation deck. The tower’s podium building will offer a high-end retail environment with a major event space. Below-grade facilities include retail, connections to the Shanghai Metro and three floors of parking.

“We hope Shanghai Tower inspires new ideas about what sustainable tall buildings can be,” said Art Gensler, FAIA, Chairman of Gensler. “We’ve lined the perimeter of the tower, top to bottom, with public spaces, and we’ve integrated strategic environmental thinking into every move. The tower is a stage that comes to life through the presence of people.”

Tower Composition

Shanghai Tower is organized as nine cylindrical buildings stacked one atop another. The inner layer of the double-skin façade encloses the stacked buildings, while a triangular exterior layer creates the second skin, or building envelope, which gently rotates as it rises. The spaces between the two façade layers create nine atrium sky gardens. Much like plazas and civic squares in traditional cities, the sky atria offer spaces within Shanghai Tower for interaction.. and community with restaurants, cafés, coffee shops and convenience stores, as well as lush landscaping.

With sky gardens lining the tower’s perimeter, Shanghai Tower is literally wrapped in public spaces. Both interior and exterior skins are transparent, establishing a visual connection between the tower’s interiors and Shanghai’s urban fabric. At night the building’s glowing translucent form further highlights interior public spaces. On the ground level, retail and event spaces, in tandem with abundant entrances on the site, further the physical and visual connections between the tower and the city.


Sustainable Strategies

In accordance with the goals of the Shanghai Tower Construction and Development Co., Ltd., the tower will be one of the most sustainable tall buildings in the world. Working closely with Thornton Tomasetti and Cosentini, Gensler adopted a fully integrated design approach, ensuring all design decisions uphold a sustainable intent.

The façade’s taper, texture and asymmetry work in partnership to reduce wind loads on the building by 24 percent, offering considerable savings overall in both building materials and construction costs. In addition, the building’s spiraling parapet collects rainwater, which is used for the tower’s heating and air conditioning systems. Wind turbines located directly beneath the parapet generate on-site power. The landscaped atria improve indoor air quality and create comfortable places for people to linger. Shanghai Tower’s owners aim to register for a high level of building certification from the China Green Building Committee and the U.S. Green Building Council.

Location: Luijiazui Finance and Trade Zone, Pudong district, Shanghai, China
Area: 30,370 square meters

Tower
Height: 632 meters
Stories: 128 occupied fl oors
Area: 380,000 square meters above grade 170,000 square meters below grade
Program: Office, luxury hotel, entertainment, retail and cultural venues

Height: 38 meters
Stories: 5 stories high
Area: 44,000 square meters
Program: Luxury retail, office, hotel lobbies, bank, restaurant, conference, meeting and banquet functions. Lower levels will house retail, parking, service and MEP functions.

Site and Context
• Shanghai Tower is sited in the Luijiazui Finance and Trade Zone of Pudong, a major financial and commercial hub of China. Eighteen years ago, Luijiazui was predominantly farmland. Today, it is set to become a premiere global financial center.
• Shanghai Tower completes a trio of buildings that form China’s first super-tall district. While the Jin Mao Tower pays homage to China’s past and the Shanghai World Financial Center signifies China’s recent economic success, Shanghai Tower signifies the boundless possibilities of China’s future.
• The tower is situated in a public park with an open civic plaza.

Tower Composition
• As a new Shanghai skyline icon, Shanghai Tower presents a constantly changing façade from all directions.
• The building’s form is a metaphor for the spirit and philosophy of China. Referencing the spiral as a symbol of the cosmos in Chinese culture, the tower’s form symbolizes China’s connection with the world, space and time. Additionally, the tower’s triangular plan relates to the site’s harmonious trio of buildings.
• Shanghai Tower is organized internally as a series of nine cylindrical buildings stacked one atop the other, with nine atria encircling them. The inner layer of the tower’s doubleskin façade encloses the vertically arranged interior buildings, while a triangular exterior layer creates the second skin or building envelope. The spaces between the building’s external façade and its internal façade create the atria.
• With sky gardens lining the building’s perimeter, Shanghai Tower is literally wrapped in public spaces. Both interior and exterior skins are transparent, establishing a visual connection between the tower’s interior spaces and Shanghai’s urban fabric. At night the building’s glowing translucent form further joins city and tower.
• As plazas and civic squares create gathering spaces in traditional cities, the nine atria offer gathering spaces within Shanghai Tower.
• On the ground level, retail and event spaces in tandem with abundant entrances on the site further the physical and visual connections between the tower and city.

Sustainable Highlights
• The twisting, asymmetrical shape of the tower reduces wind loads on the building by 24 percent, reducing the structural load on the building.
• Innovative skin technology is one of many sustainable design and renewable energy systems in the tower. The circular inner glass skin uses 14 percent less glass than a square building of the same area, and minimizes energy consumption.
• The double–skin façade’s vertical atria create thermal buffer zones. It also improves indoor air quality while creating desirable places for people to linger. These public amenity floors also reduce the number of vertical trips each building occupant mustmake.
• The building’s spiraling parapet collects rainwater, which is used for the tower’s heating and air conditioning systems. The spiral shape facilitates vortex shedding and creates an asymmetrical surface to reduce wind loads on the building. Wind turbines located directly beneath the parapet generate on-site power.
• Shanghai Tower’s owners aim to register for a high level of building certification from the China Green Building Committee and the US Green Building Council.

Retail Podium
• The retail podium is a multi-story, luxury retail experience that incorporates an ambitious mix of premium luxury brand fl agships, one-of-a-kind specialty retailers, and high-concept dining.
• The dynamic metropolitan feel of the retail podium is designed to enhance the experiential quality for a mix of visitors, tourists and tower inhabitants. Upscale retail facilities, restaurants, cafés and bars combine to provide the ultimate urban leisure destination in Shanghai.
• Acting as a weather barrier, the curved podium façade is glazed to merge inside with outside, allowing daylight to penetrate the space and to form a connection between the approaching visitor to the Shanghai Tower and the stores and restaurants within it.
• A series of multi-level branded retail stores located on the ground level offer uninterrupted visibility from the exterior to their storefronts. Lower-level retail provides direct access from the street level and the mass transit promenade.

Tower Pinnacle
• The tower’s pinnacle features the world’s highest non-enclosed observation deck.

Global Collaboration
• The core Shanghai Tower design team is located in Gensler’s Shanghai office and includes more than 80 design professionals from Shanghai and abroad.
• To design an innovative tower that met the client’s sustainability and performance goals, Gensler called on talent from its global network, including the firm’s offices in Shanghai, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, New York, Washington D.C. and San Francisco.

@ Huti

IMO, Shanghai could go further than, even, Dubai can. I honestly believe that the current infrastructure splurge that the city is experiencing is a big indicator that its development strategy is more sustainable and solid than Dubai's.

Heck, Shanghai sits at the gateway of the world's second largest dense congregation of humanity, the Central China Plain. More specifically, Shanghai is the urban heart of the Yangtze River Delta megalopolis.

And, while Dubai is more focused on service-oriented leisure/hospitality developments, Shanghai is more focused on the industrial ones. I mean, Shanghai serves as the frontman for the world's second largest factory base (The Pearl River Delta Megalopolis is the largest.).

Furthermore, its infrastructure network would be unparalleled even by Greater Tokyo and the New York Tri-State Area in twenty years-time. I mean, what other city has built deep-water ports the size of Yangshan, bridges the length of Donghai and Hangzhou Bay bridges, or railway hubs the vastness of the Hongqiao Rail Hub.

Add to that a full-fledged Disney resort (Shanghai Disney Resort), and what you get is the 21st-century's answer to London, New York, Paris, and Tokyo; all at the same time.

Pudong to have its 'People's Square'

2008-12-17


Century Metropolis, a 6-billion-yuan (US$876.4 million) complex of shops, offices and underground parking, dubbed as Pudong's "People's Square," started construction yesterday.

The project is part of Pudong New Area's plan to extend the Lujiazui area to the east to develop Zhangyang Road into a commercial zone.

Century Metropolis boasts a good road network with three main roads leading to it and has four intersecting Metro lines.

The complex will be enclosed by Dongfang Road, Zhangyang Road, Fushan Road and Weifang Road. It will cover about 90,000 square meters and be divided by Shiji Avenue into two triangle-shaped sections.

When completed, the complex will also be connected underground to Shiji Avenue Station, a major transport hub. Presently, Metro Line 2, 4 and 6 meet at the station.

In future, Line 9 will also be extended eastbound across the Huangpu River to connect to the station.

Construction of the first triangle-shaped section, the Century Metropolis 2-3 Parcel, was launched yesterday and will be completed in four years.

Lujiazui Financial Trade Zone Development Co and Bailian Group will invest 6 billion yuan to develop this section. Lujiazui Financial will develop the office buildings and Bailian will be responsible for the development of the shops.

According to the plan, a retail podium, five floors and part of the sixth floor to be used for auditoriums, is located in the northern part along Zhangyang Road, the shopping street.

Three office towers of more than 10 floors are located in the southern part close to Fushan Road and Shiji Avenue.

Offices will start from the second floor and the first floor is earmarked for retail businesses.

The other triangle-shaped section, to be developed by Hong Kong's Hutchison Whampoa Ltd, will contain a 39-storey office building, a 23-floor hotel and will also have space for retail, restaurant, entertainment and cultural activities.

Pudong's gross domestic product rose 11.9 percent on year in the first half of this year, and it expected the growth rate to reach 11 percent for this year.
