HANGZHOU | Zhejiang Fortune Finance Center | 258m | 55 fl | 188m | 37 fl | Com



W o r k I n P r o g r e s s

ZHE JIANG FORTUNE FINANCE CENTER
Hangzhou, China

The design for this project was tasked with setting the quality benchmark for future development within a new Central Business District (CBD). John Portman & Associates was challenged to create two towers within an urban plaza setting. A curved shape, a powerful departure from the standard rectilinear form, was chosen to help maintain the project's prominence as the first large scale development in the CBD. The positioning of the towers takes on a sculptural feel. As the top of one building reaches up, its peak flows into the rising summit of the other, creating a dynamic energy between the sloping roofs of the two towers. This project was a pilot program for the use of BIM within the firm and has inspired the firm to fully implement BIM solutions for all future projects.
