Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) has won a design competition to build Tower C at Shenzhen Bay Super Headquarters Base, a business and financial centre that hopes to create clusters of corporate headquarters and able to accommodate 300,000 employees each day.
A true hub, it will also serve as a destination for international conferences, exhibitions, cultural
and art programmes, as well as residences, a transportation centre, botanical grasslands, and coastal zone with wetlands. There’s also shopping, entertainment and dining, a hotel, convention centre, and cultural facilities with exhibition galleries.
The terraced landscape extends upwards within the two towers where the cultural and leisure attractions take place in bridges that tie the towers together.
ZHA’s own 3D modelling tools helped inform the architectural massing, orientation and facade-to-floor ratios. Standing nearly 400m high, the towers are said to provide column-free naturally-lit office space.
Other environmental and eco-friendly solutions including water-collection and recycling as well as photovoltaics to harvest solar energy for the district.
