Shenzhen Building: PR Dec 2006 from Office for Metropolitan Architecture

OMA Commissioned for New Shenzhen Stock Exchange HQ

(Shenzhen, Rotterdam, 22 December, 2006) - The Shenzhen Stock Exchange (SSE) has announced the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) as winner of the competition to design its new financial exchange.


Located in Shenzhen's new Financial District adjacent to the administrative and cultural center of the city, the new SSE will be a financial center with civic importance.

At a height of approximately 250 meters and 259,000m2 of gross floor area, the building will house the SSE offices and will include a trading floor, registration and clearing house, the Securities Information Company and ancillary services.

The building features a floating base, edged up the tower to become a platform to support and launch the area which it liberates on the ground. The space between the raised platform and the ground is used as a covered urban plaza, large enough to accommodate public festivals and financial information streams down digital banners hanging from the elevated platform.

With construction to begin in 2007, the SSE is OMA's second large-scale project to be built in China.

The design is better, but I don't think they have too much space to build it like that in New York given a very small parcel of land they have. But the one they are proposing right now is definitely is a non starter.

IMO, this complex would fit better in Dubai than in NYC, especially since it tons of space for it.

New York needs graceful architecture. Building something this weird belongs in Dubai not New York.

New York has a history of great skyscrapers, adding such weird buildings who are only made for show instead of being utilized to the max is a bad idea

If you think the WTC Towers "are only made for show," you must be out of your mind.

For once I think I am with TalB. Tower 5 looks (HID-AY-US). I'd rather have a box.

Seriously, it looks like a puzzle piece. Just awful.

It just shows that bells and whistles aren't always everything when it comes to skyscraper projects.

Hey, you can only get so lucky before you get a building with a birth defect.

Quick question.. Is there a 6 WTC in the plans. I've noticed that every building has been accounted for except that one.

Oh yea and I forgot about King Kong, if someone can get him house trained!


I think the building is fine also. It's unique and inspiring (inspire what you will). It's probably the only building in the whole WTC complex that is unique, new and fresh.
