Concept

“The eye of Shanghai”

 

The Solution

The project is for skyscraper in the most famous area of Shanghai-Pudong. The concept is to create a landmark building for Shanghai city- “The eye of Shanghai”. The building create an illusion of impossible “S” construction but at real is with geometry of “人”- the hieroglyph for a person in Chinese language and one of the most stable constructive form. Using this concept people can look “through” the building The “hidden” part is from glass with color of the surrounding buildings and this way form first look building looks impossible but actually is with very strong construction. The walls of the skyscraper are made from electrochromic and colored glass which can self-clean and change the color depending on the external light.
