Songjiang Hotel

Winning design entry for a five-star resort hotel set within a beautiful
water-filled quarry in the Songjiang district near Shanghai, China.

The hotel stands two levels higher than the rock face of the 100 metre
deep quarry and includes underwater public areas and guestrooms.

An aquatic theme runs through the design both visually and


functionally. Two underwater levels will house a restaurant and
guestrooms facing a ten-metre deep aquarium. The lowest level of the
hotel will contain a leisure complex with a swimming pool and water-
based sports.

The entire hotel is to be covered in a green roof, while the building will
use geothermal energy for it’s electrical supply and heating.

Shanghai Tower

Under construction in Shanghai, China.

Set to become one of the tallest structures in the


world and the tallest in China. It will complete the
three planned supertall structures standing next to
each other in the financial district.

The tower will be organised as nine cylindrical


buildings stacked atop each other, enclosed by
the glass facade´s inner layer. Between that and
the outer layer, nine indoor gardens at different
levels will provide public space for Shanghai
residents. The tower will feature the world's
highest non-enclosed observation deck.

The design of the glass façade will reduce wind


loads on the building by 24%, meaning less
construction materials are needed, the twisting
feature will collect rainwater to be used for the
tower's air conditioning and heating systems.
Wind turbines will generate power for the
building.
