Cenke Tower’s Standout Design

Sponsored

German studio HENN won a competition to design a 280-m-tall skyscraper in Taiyuan, China, de zeen reported. Cenke Tower is to be located in the center of the city. Its front and rear façades will feature smooth profiles that curve outward, while the narrow sides are designed with convex curvatures. Each of these elevations will be glazed, exposing aluminum cross-braces. The trapezoidal shape of the mixed-use (mostly office) building is intended to reduce along with building height in the upper levels and determines the amount of direct sunlight admitted to suit the planned use of the space within. While the offices receive optimum solar shading and maximum interior daylight, guests in the hotel (on the upper floors) can enjoy the widest possible views over the city.
