Greenland Group Suzhou Center
Status: Ongoing
Location: Wujiang, China

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill have won a competition to design a skyscraper for China with proposals that incorporate a 30-storey-high opening window. The 358-metre-high Suzhou Center will be the sixth building the architects have designed for Chinese property developers the Greenland Group and is to be located beside Taihu Lake in Wujiang.

Like sculpting a high-performance automobile, digital aerodynamic modeling was critical to shaping this 358-meter supertall tower. Acting as the “lung” of the building, the tower’s atrium is defined by a 30-story tall operable window, that invites cool air flow during summer months and floods the interior spaces with natural light.

The atrium has also been designed to facilitate mixed-mode ventilation in the lobbies and public spaces, providing a fresh air supply source for the building and its inhabitants. A series of high-efficiency measures employed in the tower are predicted to achieve a 60 percent savings in energy consumption as compared to a conventional American high-rise.

ORUM RESIDENCE BY SPF: ARCHITECTS

Design | January 24, 2022

Perched atop a Bel Air hilltop, Orum is a three-level, 18,800-square-foot home designed to subtly 'float' above its environs. Given its prominent positioning above a relatively developed neighborhood, the motivation behind the design of the home was to create a residence that could meld into its surroundings while maximizing views. The three-story structure, which takes on the shape of a three-winged propeller, is wrapped in glass that mirrors its sweeping views of the Los Angeles Basin, unobstructed from the Getty Center to Long Beach, Century City, and Downtown.
