Goettsch Partners Unwrap Tianjin Supertall

Coming from the pens of Goettsch Partners is another supertall tower proposed for the Chinese city of Tianjin.

With a height of 439 metres, the scheme is being developed by Guangzhou R&F Properties as a mixed use development to contain 294,570 square metres of space and 91 occupiable levels. This will include 134,900 square metres of grade A office space, 55 condos, a 400 bedroom five star hotel, and 8,550 square metres of retail on the lower floors.

The tower is designed to set back as it rises and as the number of service cores in the building that host 55 lifts decrease. This means that despite the shrinking size of the tower on the upper levels, the space between the core and the building perimeter will actually be the same as on the lower floors on the north and south sides.

Working as a slickly glazed affair, the tower has been planned to have what appears to be an unwrapping motion as it rises. Along with the curving corners on the building, this is intended to reference ancient Chinese scrolls. Exploiting this concept are the atria located at every point that the tower unwraps whilst on top of each will be a landscaped roof.

Construction has yet to begin on site as the architects are still working on polishing the design, but they expect the scheme to be completed in 2015 making an impressive counterpoint to the nearby Sinosteel Tower.
