中国,广州,广州之窗办公综合楼 / 阿特金斯

中国交通建设股份有限公司(中交建)委托设计和工程公司阿特金斯在广州设计一系列新办公楼。阿特金斯公司提出的设计采用了三座独立建筑的形式,其中两座形成巨大的类似窗户的结构。这些建筑有一个主题——“广州之窗”,是对广州这座城市的历史的纪念,广州是第一座沿着中国传说中的丝绸之路开放国际贸易的中国港口城市。

建筑群的形状代表了广州的重要性。三座塔楼沿珠江设置,看上去就像是数字“001”,暗指了广州的贸易历史。中交建的项目经理舒刚表示:“阿特金斯公司的设计理念展示了广州作为中国通往世界的大门的重要性。窗户形状的建筑提升了广州的城市形象——处在中国进出口贸易的重要位置。”

该项目的窗户形状也具有功能性,因为它们不会阻挡后面建筑内的人们欣赏珠江景色。三个结构的设计最大限度地实现了通风和遮阳,以解决中国南方湿度大的问题。

广州之窗项目将于2018年完成。


Design and engineering firm Atkins has been commissioned by the China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) to design a series of new office buildings in Guanzhou. Their proposed design takes the form of three independent buildings, two of which form large, window-like structures. With a working title “Window of Guangzhou,” these buildings will commemorate the city’s history as the first Chinese port city opened to international trade along China’s legendary Silk Road.

The very shape of the building complex represents Guangzhou’s significance. The three towers, situated along the Zhujiang River, appear to read as “001,” indicating the city’s trade history. The CCCC’s project manager, Shu Gang, stated “Atkins’ design concept demonstrates the importance of Guangzhou as a gateway to China for the world. The window-shaped buildings promote the city’s image as an important location for China’s import and export business.”

The window shapes of the project are also functional, in that they do not block views of the river for buildings situated behind them. All three of the structures are designed to maximize ventilation and shading to offset the humidity of southern China.

The Window of Guangzhou is expected to be completed in 2018.
