DC Towers I + II in Vienna, Austria by Dominique Perrault Architecture

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Article source: Dominique Perrault Architecture

The design of the two high-rise towers for the Donau-City in Vienna represents the concluding phase of a development extending over several decades: on what was originally a municipal rubbish tip the UNO-City was erected (1973–1979), tentative plans to hold the 1995 Vienna-Budapest EXPO here were soon abandoned, as a result architects Krischanitz and Neumann (commissioned by WED AG) produced an urban design masterplan for the area in 1992. The outcome is an entirely new urban district with a diverse range of functions.

High Street South in Manila, Philippines by CAZA Architects

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Article source: CAZA Architects

Activating the cultural center of Manila’s Bonifacio Global City, CAZA’s design for the High Street South project fuses the neighborhood, district, and urban scales of the master plan around a spine that functions as a network for public spaces. Borrowing from the geological notion of stratification, CAZA created multiple layers of public space that weave together circulation, culture, recreation and event spaces through a collection of hybridized mixed-use towers. Tower typologies are informed by striated levels that include public spaces of mobility and retail at the ground level; semi-private spaces for recreation and amenities; and private residential spaces with urban villas, terraced apartments, and loft units. With the facades’ playfully idiosyncratic grid patterns that correspond to these layers of tower typology, CAZA has designed a family of unique towers that share a unifying visual language and create a gracefully moving texture against the Manila skyline.

Nanjing Financial City II (Third plot) in China by gmp · Architekten von Gerkan, Marg und Partner

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Article source: gmp · Architekten von Gerkan, Marg und Partner 

With a height of 411 meters, the building comes under the high-rise building category of the “super-high skyscrapers” of the CTBUH, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. This means that the architects von Gerkan, Marg and Partners are putting up their highest building ever on the third plot. Design activities for the first two building plots (A and B) had already started after the gmp master plan obtained first prize in the competition at the beginning of last year. Now the client has also given the go-ahead for the third building plot (C). The site lies to the south-west of the inner city next to the trade exhibition grounds, and is the key project for linking two urban axes of the Hexi New Town development.

Torre Bicentenario in Mexico City by OMA

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Article source: OMA 

Compared with the world’s other economically ascendant regions such as Asia and the Middle East, Latin America has a skyscraper deficit. Poised to harness the economic and symbolic potential of the Bicentennial, Mexico City will celebrate a historic moment with the emergence of a new skyscraper, the Torre Bicentenario. In an architectural age defined by the pursuit of expression at all costs, the Torre Bicentenario is building whose unique form is responsive rather than frivolous; a building whose form facilitates rather than complicates its use: the stacking of two pyramidal forms produces a building simultaneously familiar and unexpected, historic yet visionary.

Article source: Behnisch Architekten

Directly on the Elbe, commanding a prominent position in the HafenCity, stands the Marco Polo Tower right beside the new Unilever headquarters, also by Behnisch Architekten. The 55 m high tower punctuates the end of the route from the inner city out to the new attractions, the Cruise Ship Terminal and the Promenade on Strandkai. In its form and arrangement, it is a unique and remarkable sculptured building, adding to Hamburg’s silhouette on the Elbe. Its 17 above ground levels, each turned a few degrees on their axis, allow all 58 apartments spectacular views over the harbour and the city.
