Update: Hangzhou Gateway Tower / JDS Architects

Update: Hangzhou Gateway Tower / JDS Architects

Back in June, we shared JDS winning mixed use project for HangzhouChina.  Conceptualized as the iconic link that fuses two prominent parts of the city, the Hangzhou H project is a dynamic experiment of formal expression.  The tiered volume opens pedestrian connections at the ground level, and supports a generous landscape that functions as a rain water retainer on the roof level.   The young firm has just received the necessary building permits, and will begin construction in March of 2012.  We’ll keep you covered on the building’s progress, and be sure to view our previous coverage of the winning competition proposal here.
