Looks like combination of Beijing WTC and Hong Kong ICC.

I guess there's nothing new with having very difference english/chinese names...
As far as I know, Taihu Guangchang was generic name of the concept project before being acquired by The Wharf.

This is u/c now!!!!!!!! It should be moved to the u/c thread.

By the way, what is the name of the wavy building next to this? It looks like some kind of exibition center of something, but it is very nice.
