Shenzhen‘s modern Greater Bay Area business and financial hub, the Tower C, has just been unveiled. The Zaha Hadid Architects project will serve not only as the home of new office spaces but a range of commercial and cultural uses as well.
The impressive architectural feat located at the Shenzhen Bay Super Headquarters Base will include areas for entertainment, shopping and dining, a hotel and a convention center, and even gallery spaces for various exhibitions, alongside home and office. It stands a staggering 1,312 feet tall with two conjoined towers that connect directly to a public transport interchange below ground, designed to flow seamlessly into the parks and landscapes in the neighborhood.
The architectural company has, as with its usual designs, incorporated a range of features that reduce environmental impact while increasing user experience. Those include connection to the district’s smart management systems which can monitor and regulate external and internal conditions, a double-insulated, unitized glass curtain wall to provide shading, ventilation registers to channel natural airflow, and energy-saving technology such as recycling and water-collection systems and photovoltaics.
