The Chongqing Gaoke Group Ltd Office building designed by Aedas has reached new heights as construction progresses, and the project is taking form in the urban fabric and the city center’s skyline. Standing tall at the north of Xingfu Plaza, in Jiangbei District of Chongqing, in the southwest of China, the high rise introduces a vibrant and dynamic movement in the surrounding. This project is scheduled for 2022, and is expected to become the world’s “Most Twisting Towers”. The vertical façade, with its linear curvatures, creates a unique and fluid visual effect. With a fully developed context, the challenge was to integrate the towers in the existing surrounding, while being iconic.  The project connects to the existing shopping center through the underpass at the west of the plot, whereas the retail podium sits adjacent to the public plaza on the south, putting in place diversified outdoor spaces.Ken Wai, Director and lead Architect of Aedas, says: View more View full description
