Hengqin International Financial Center, Zhuhai, China
Released soon after the completion of the unusual Aedas-designed Sandcrawler for George Lucas in Singapore, the Hengqin International Financial Center in Zhuhai, China takes its inspiration from a historical painting dating back to the Southern Sung Dynasty.
The development rises 334m high, beginning at ground level with a retail podium comprising conference, commercial and exhibition facilities. As the mass rises, it splits into four tower components designed to symbolise the convergence of talents of Zhuhai, Macau, Hong Kong and Shenzhen. >>>
