North Point Harbour Urban Planning Concept Winning Proposal / Chris Y. H. Chan + Stephanie M. L. Tan

Courtesy of +

This design for the North Point waterfront redevelopment, which won the first prize in the competition, proposes an “organic network” of forms for the site. Designed by Chris Y. H. Chan + Stephanie M. L. Tan, the project approach is based on the study of the adjacent “community street” – Chun Yeung St., which should have human life and the life of dwellers establishing the community. In this project, they aim to transform the Chun Yeung St’s urban model as part of an organic ecology. This model could affect the North Point district to become a more sustainable urban model.

World’s Tallest Skyscraper Back On Track To Be Built in 90 Days

Courtesy of Broad Group

Despite reports that construction firm Broad Sustainable Building (BSB), a subsidiary of Broad Group, could not complete its 220-story Sky City tower in 90 days, the company’s senior VP Juliet Jiang has announced that the “will go on as planned with the completion of five storeys a day.”

Thus, rather than in seven months, the world’s tallest tower (838 m; 2,750 ft) will be finished in three – topping out at the end of March 2013.

As we’ve discussed before here on ArchDaily, the tower could truly be revolutionary in China; Broad Group’s 95% modular technology, which is responsible for the incredible rate of construction, is also radically environmentally-friendly, earthquake-safe, and cost-effective. In fact, Sky City, designed by engineers who worked on the Burj Khalifa, will cost a tenth of that famous skyscraper (only $1,500 per square meter) – and take a twentieth of the time to build.

The building stretches along Huang Du Lü Yuan Road and extends the commercial street coming from the North. More images and architects’ description after the break.
