Resources Center Tower: Nanning


The design of the tower is derived from its multiple uses which include 170,000 square meters of Class A office space, 5,000 square meters of boutique retail, and a 45,000 square meters luxury Shangri-La hotel. The massing of the building steps and tapers to accommodate the changing floor plates of the various program types, resulting in a form that is both efficient and identifiable. "The overall effect of the tower is of a crystalline form ascending to the sky; culminating in an illuminated beacon that will define the new Nanning skyline," says Paul De Santis, LEED AP, principal at GP.
