Buy content through ScooptWords It's a new day and that can only been one thing, yet another super-tall building for a city in China that few in the West will have heard of, but are growing at a rapid and little realised rate.
This time it�s the turn of Tianjin which looks set to get a new 333 metre tall building designed by the Beijing based firm, MAD Ltd, who are rapidly carving out a name for themselves with unusual designs such as the Absolut Tower in Mississauga, Canada.
Called the Sino-Steel Tower, it will house a mixture of 200,000 square metres of office and hotel space. It's a slim white box with gently curving sides, with indented hexagonal windows completely encasing the entire height. Next door is a second building with similar looks, this time a near cube.
Texture is provided thanks to the internal areas around the windows, some of which are red making a cloud-like pattern of crimson that will visually change depending on the angle of the reflections from the sun and the time of day.
This distinctive façade with a fabric of hexagonal shaped windows is bound to earn the Sino-Steel Tower the nickname of "the honeycomb" although they wouldn't look out of place as speakers for an I-Pod.
The Sino-Steel Tower contains a number of incredible internal spaces including a terrific four floor high sky-lobby with sparse and minimal décor. Overwhelming use of surgical white and simple clean surfaces on the interior of this space creates a vision of sci-fi modernity that's taken straight out of a set design in 2001 Space Odyssey.
Internal red highlights of the windows should have a striking effect of playing with the light going through bathing everything in a slight ambient pink adding just a touch of warmth to what would otherwise be sterile design.
Only months previously British design and engineering firm Atkins had penned an equally interesting design, also for Tianjin, that we've nicknamed "the pile of boxes". The TEDA Development, alongside the Sino-Steel Tower should provide one of the more interesting groupings of super-talls in China.

Don`t know if this has been mentioned, but I just went to a lecture of the Senior Vice President of MGM Hospitality and the presentation he gave showed this tower as being a future MGM Hotel in Tianjin.

Is this On Hold? There isn't apparently much movement around, certainly not any progress since the October picture. It would be such a pity, I love this tower!

So, you prefer square or rectangular boxes of brick and concrete looking like those of NYC?

My opinion is that it is a cube with bee hive windows that will not fit in any scenery.(btw I hate NYC buildings as well)
