10月24日,远大集团总裁张跃在上海世博园远大馆发布信息。当日,远大可建“空中城市”建筑方案设计招标信息发布会在上海世博园远大馆举行。国内外知名建筑设计公司代表及专家应邀出席。这座“空中城市”为“混合社区”综合楼,集住宅、办公、商业、餐饮、影剧院、学校、医院等社区功能于一体。大厦设计高度 666米,地上200层,建筑面积124万平方米,可容纳7至11万人。据悉,远大可建“空中城市”建筑设计并不是为了追求摩天大楼“地标”意义,它的目标是回归建筑本质,用安全而又造价不高的创新技术手段建造一座普通人买得起、用得起并有助于减少交通能耗和环境污染的“竖向城市”,让人们可以“足不出户”就近办公、学习、生活。新华社记者张明摄

Wow, really?

124 square metres sounds really small, does it mean a 124m square?
also 7-11 people, 7000-11000 people?

Interesting idea though, people living and working in the same building.
I am not quite sure how a 666m building can not be a landmark building though!

Anyway if they don't release more credible stuff within a few weeks we should forget about this project. Sounds like a mere vision proposal to me :)

I'll delete the thread in one month or so unless we get more details.

666m seems a bit small for a building used as a city doesn't it? I mean the shanghai tower is already 632m... Most proposals for buildings of this function are at least 1000m with some going upwards of 4000m. All visions obviously. Check out X-seed 4000

isn't 4 the bad luck number in china?


so a tower that is 444m in china would be very bad.

also, the article says "Well-known architectural design firm representatives and experts were invited to attend", which suggests the design in the picture is definitely a place holder, and only to show how big it will be.

Not in Shanghai, please. Anywhere else, I'd be happy. Something of this size will only steal attention from the elegant skyline in Luijiazui.

b. 666? Really?

I do like the 888 idea- in fact I think we shall see it soon.

That is just a poor design, almost to the point of cheap. Take a look at the Shanghai Tower and take notes before you design.
