Tianshan Gate of The World (Large-Scale Urban Mixed-Use Project) by Aedas
2018 - 2019, Golden A' Architecture, Building and Structure Design Award Winner
Inspiration
The design of the tower is inspired by the core spirit of Chinese Philosophy: the harmonious spirit of the Unity of Heaven and Man. The appearance reflects on the curvy form of Chinese zither strings while it also expresses the beauty and rhythmic flow of long dancing sleeves.
Creativity
Tianshan Gate of the World is a large-scale mixed-use project located in new city center of Shijiazhuang which features a 450m tall International Finance Center skyscraper with its retail podium, a 150m Medical tower, eight 100m serviced apartment towers, eight Grade-A office towers and a central retail street. The 450m skyscraper offers Grade-A offices, a 5-star hotel, serviced apartments, restaurants and a sky club with an observatory 360° spiral flying deck and an infinity pool at the top.
Design Challenges
Apart from offering Grade-A offices, a 5-star hotel, serviced apartments and restaurants, this 450m super high-rise also gets a world’s first design: a sky club with an observatory 360° spiral flying deck and an infinity pool at the top. The four-storey commercial podium consists of an ‘urban living room’, high-end retails, a healthcare center, an ice-world entertainment zone, a conference center with a bio-climatic roof garden and 6 sky gardens on different levels offering unique vertical spaces.
Production Technology
Double Low-E glass will be applied to reduce heat gain through window opening. External fins provide effective shading to the building envelope. Biophilia design concept is introduced to connect the building more to nature, which improves temperature control and reduces energy use in sky gardens. Recyclable materials will be selected to reduce virgin material use and solid waste volume. Use of regional materials reduces pollutions from delivery to construction site.
