this is some info from vla who designed the first pro

GLOBAL FINANCE CENTER






VLA is in the process of further development of our proposal for an international, invited competition for the 'Global Finance Center' in the CBD of Chongqing, China. The proposal was delivered July 31st, 2007. The project is for a skyscraper located in downtown Chongqing, and with its 70 floors and 300m height it will dominate the skyline of this part of the city. The tower will house retail, a hotel, commercial and residential space for a total of 180,000 m 2.

The primary architectural objective for this proposal is to create a landmark building in Chongqing’s CBD which ensures a strong visual presence for the Global Finance Center both at the street level and in the skyline of the city overall. The proposal also seeks to create a modern building which retains a relationship to the region. Other objectives include reinforcing urban relationships surrounding the site, creating a lively and enticing urban environment at the base of the tower which will be the optimal background for exclusive retail, and providing semi-outdoor green spaces as an amenity for the offices and apartments.

It is not??? What the hell... are they playing with us, poor fans? So many AMAZING proposals for this plot and none of them is definitive. This one was my favourite by far...

Good luck in your research, hope you can bring us the final

Update


I can't understand this... They haven't cleared the plot but they are constructing "something". What the hell is that structure?

The first version was better, at least more original.

New design? It is the wierd one in the background. By CY Lee studio (Taipei 101 architect). It's 环球金融中心, btw.


Another known one also by CY Lee.


This is by another different studio. The best by far imo.

Chrysler Building? http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/g...others/303.jpg

I prefer the second one. The motifs on the facade reminds me old Chinese houses.

Google earth poster showing all main projects in the city center including Global Financial Building. The image doesn't include some supertalls too far away from the center like Jialing Fanying (443m), Dadukou Twin Towers (2x385m), etc.
