Canton Tower
Guangzhou, 2011
Where most historical skyscrapers bear male characteristics; being angular, simplistic, heavy and based on repetition, Canton Tower is defined to have the identity of a female; smooth, curved, slender, gracious and incorporating diversity of spaces and floor-plan sizes.

The tower intends to be simple and complex at the same time, and attempts to offer Guangzhou city a new form that would be in tune with contemporary times whilst challenging current building technologies.
Overlooking Zhujiang new town, the last photo shows the view from the tower's observation deck.
