Ping'An is really such an eyesore. Not only does it stand as an outcast, but also it pollutes the skyline with its dumb red shinny logo.

Wish there would be more IFC quality towers.

That picture is not ''by christos greece''. It's just been taken from Flickr. Please pay attention to who actually took the picture and give the actual photographer credit.

New offices on British architectural firm's mainland blueprint
13 December 2010
SCMP

After five years of doing business on the mainland, Britain-based architectural firm Benoy has embarked on a major expansion drive that will see it increase staff numbers more than threefold in the next 12 months and open several new offices.

"China is a huge country, you have to get yourself into it," said Graham Cartledge, who chairs and owns the global architectural firm.

Lured by enormous opportunities in the architectural industry, and a belief that having a local presence is key to establishing a strong foothold in the market, Cartledge said Benoy planned to open new offices in western China including in Chongqing and Chengdu. It already has offices in Shanghai and Beijing.

Since its mainland foray began with the establishment of an office in Shanghai five years ago, the firm has provided design services for Hong Kong and mainland developers in 28 mainland cities. One of its first projects in China was the Shanghai IFC, a six-storey retail mall.

Benoy recently won three new deals: the Tongzhou Centre in Beijing - an office-hotel-residential development; the mixed-use Raffles City in Shenzhen; and the White Magnolia Plaza in Shanghai - a retail development connected to the city's metro system.

Founded in 1947 in Newark, Nottinghamshire, Benoy forged its reputation for designing large-scale retail and commercial developments with the contract to design the Bluewater complex in Kent and the Bull Ring in Birmingham.

Cartledge, who was awarded the CBE in 2008, said British firms wanted to do business on the mainland, which he called one of the world's most important design centres.

Benoy currently has about 60 staff members in its mainland offices in Shanghai and Beijing. Cartledge said the number in Benoy's mainland office would probably jump to "200 this time next year". This would be comparable to the present size of its staff in Hong Kong.

Benoy's Asian expansion began 10 years ago when the company was selected by the MTR Corporation to design the shopping mall - now known as Elements - at Kowloon Station.

"Hong Kong was our introduction and opening to China 10 years ago when we first took the decision to internationalise, and for many years it has been our home in Asia. Hong Kong has since acted as a springboard for us to expand into China and Asia," Cartledge said.

Architects were drawn to the region by the growth and speed of development in the mainland market, he said.
