China Telecom Building
As a global information interaction hub and national scope information interaction and management center, the project juxtaposes the mechanical and administrating functions as well as provides opportunity for later requirement of telecom development. To emphasize the apparent height, the massing strategy merges two vertical volumes – a solid rectangular block and a translucent curved volume – to be an office tower with similar exterior components. The towers are clad with light blue Low-E glass curtain walls supported by dark grey aluminum framework and the facades of podium are composed by metal panels and glass.
