Text description provided by the architects. Introducing the prosperous image to the riverbank, the 200-meter-high Nanchang Sinic Center with curved glass curtain wall covering the façade brings about dynamics and diversity to the skyline of Ganjiang river-front in between those solid square buildings.

From a bird view, the architecture plan, landscape and highways with gentle curves respond to city texture and stand out from the square and upright site arrangement around.

The architecture from is pure without skirt buildings. Integrally considering the overall organization and fa-çade, architects used a more than 80 meters long three-dimensional curved rain shed on the first floor to echo the tower, which is like a dynamic fluttering ribbon when seen from the ground. The rain shed plays the role of transition in between architecture and the ground as it gradually rises from the ground and possesses vital-ly like the façade and landscape.

Meanwhile, the rain shed satisfies the needs like arranging entrances and stopping places for cars, promises the smooth fire-fighting access, and integrates drainage systems and lighting systems in nodes.

The general plan of Nanchang Sinic Center is designed to be a triangle with curved sides, which both softens the sharp feeling brought by angles and properly avoids eye distraction from buildings to be built next to it. As the shape of core tube structure is a triangle, the area proportion it may cover is reduced, creating a freer and more open space for users. Meanwhile, that continuous streamlined form of its plan maximums the width of glass of the office space, increasing the field of version towards Ganjiang River to 270°.

Tianhua led the whole design course of the building, which reveals the eastern wisdom of aesthetics, presenting the integration and interaction between landmark and context, architecture and city, as well as form and function.
