Weihai CITIC Financial Building

The tower of CITICFinancialBuildinguses the convergent and sectional form from bottom to top, to stress the vigorous and leaping up momentum. On the top of the main building and the business hall at the main entrance, there is a curved metal roof, which looks like an eagle with spreading wings or a huge shoe-shaped gold ingot, implying the prosperous banking business. In addition, it’s the variant form of the classical cornice and brackets used in the ancient Chinese buildings.
