Qianhai Shimao building was awarded the “best super high rise building Excellence Award” by CTBUH


The world society for high rise buildings and Urban Human Settlements (CTBUH) is a leading non-profit organization focusing on the future of high rise buildings and cities in the world

.

Each layer of subtle changes in the collection and rotation, enrich the parameters of the indoor space

.

The evaluation committee is composed of well-known experts and scholars of various disciplines to independently evaluate the application projects

.

Through the shape of rotation and embracing, they represent the beautiful yearning for the common development of the two cities

.

The column grid structure and curtain wall unit are matched on each floor to create efficient and flexible indoor office space

.

The outer surface of the flexible design podium is equipped with efficient sunshade, and the solar absorption rate of the glass curtain wall is 1.7, which is a high standard performance index in the hot climate environment

.

City texture: Shimao Group hopes that this landmark building will not only achieve commercial success, but also realize the flexible design strategy for the city and community

.

It not only solves the problem of multi-layer interconnection between buildings at the micro level, but also considers the relationship between buildings and public transport hub as well as the upper planning

.

By releasing the adjacent space, it forms a more friendly adjacent relationship with the surrounding buildings

.

In order to create a pleasant walking environment, we should make artistic contrast between the carefully carved shape, the rich texture curtain wall, the cold color, high reflectivity glass and the warm color copper

.

The award program includes 20 categories, including the best high-rise building, urban living, innovation, renovation, interior design, construction and engineering

.

The two modeling blocks of the tower rise from the ground to the sky, and in the process of rising, they embrace each other in elegant form

.

Its design aims to realize the design philosophy of “harmony but not Sameness”, which not only harmoniously integrates into the whole architectural complex, but also stands out with its unique form

.

Openness, multi-storey business planning, activated city square, these design elements are designed to enhance the public space within the community..

.

Therefore, our design considerations in planning focus on connectivity and comprehensiveness

.

Starting from the irregular base, the architectural modeling gradually gains points and rotates 45 degrees at the same time

.

It adopts a bottom-up retractable design to realize the simultaneous torsion of external curtain wall and external frame column

.

CTBUH award is the most authoritative international award in the super high-level field, and the award-winning projects play a positive leading role in the industry

.

The rigorous geometric modeling of the tower is based on the square plane which is divided into two parts

.

The CTBUH awards program aims to reward projects and individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the development of high-rise buildings and urban environment and are committed to achieving the highest level of sustainable development

.

The design team takes care of the space between buildings: the node areas that interweave the pedestrian environment

.

Considering the high density of the site, the tower gradually rotates as it rises

.

Qianhai Shimao building, with a height of nearly 300 meters, is a landmark in Qianhai area of Shenzhen and one of the highest torsion buildings in the world

.

It is committed to studying how to build a sustainable and healthy city through increasing urban density and vertical development in the context of large-scale urbanization and climate change

.

Qianhai Shimao building has obtained LEED gold pre certification and China Green Construction Samsung certification

.

The volume of the building is separated at the crown of the tower, showing the axis relationship, metaphorically expressing the geographical connection between the two cities

.

The orientation design of the tower maximizes the landscape view of the Bay and hill, while minimizing the visual impact between the buildings

.

As the highest one of the high-density urban buildings in Qianhai area, Qianhai Shimao building is surrounded by six buildings

.

The application of parametric design ensures the accurate design of complex glass curtain wall plate

.

The two plots represent Shenzhen and Hong Kong respectively

.

The rotating building shape and embedded grooves greatly reduce the lateral wind load, thus reducing the structural size and effectively reducing the hidden carbon emissions

.

The podium and pedestrian grid are interwoven in multiple dimensions and connected to the subway station underground

.

Out of this vision, the design emphasizes the details of the podium and the space clearance treatment from the perspective of pedestrians

.

Parameterization in order to maximize the efficiency of the floor plane, the structural system is rotated accordingly to match the geometric modeling of the building

.

This kind of rotating shape can effectively reduce the wind load, the total weight and the required structural quantity, which is very necessary in the Qianhai area where typhoons frequently land

.

The final spiral geometric shape not only conforms to the uniqueness of architectural aesthetics, but also has the practical function of realizing the sustainable goal
