Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill( AS +GG) architecture have won the right to design the Shimao Longgang Master Plan that includes a 700-meter tall skysraper called the Shenzhen-Hong Kong International Center. Set to become the tallest skyscraper in china, the project will be set between the foothills of Longcheng Park and Dayun National Park. The supertall is designed to be a new sculptural icon for the hong Kong skyline.
Adrian Smith said that, “The Shenzhen-Hong Kong International Center is anthropomorphic in its character, representing and honoring in an abstract way the athletes that train and struggle to have the opportunity to perform in the world-class stadiums, arenas, and natatorium directly adjacent to and integrated into the overall AS+GG master plan for this project. The result is a muscular expression in high-performance glass with layers of texture that define the elements of its shaped form.”
The building is said to be the tallest and China and one of the tallest skyscrapers in the world
