Office Building of China Datang Corporation
The two towers encompass a reserved historical courtyard and create a semi-public urban space inviting the busy people in Financial Street to have a rest. Facing a street crossing, the east one is stepped back to decrease the pressure of huge mass. A contrastive palette is comprised of beige Travertine clad wall, dark grey lattice and light grey low-E glass. At the same time, the extruded vertical slabs emphasize the sculptural effects of the building by shading on the recessed glass.
