Lead ArchitectKris Yao

The project is located in prominent Lujiazui waterfront, forming the Shanghai Pudong skyline with other renowned skyscrapers. It reads as a cluster of four slender towers separated by recesses on each side, and the distinct V-pattern of the glazing imparts energy to the facades. The double-skin curtain wall is externally ventilated. Movable louvers in the cavity are programmed to block direct sun, reducing heat gain and glare. It creates a comfortable working environment with a LEED Platinum rating in which every space enjoys evenly balanced natural light and an expansive view over the city.
