LWK + PARTNERS’ Guiyang Twin Towers in China is one of the world’s 20 tallest buildings completed in 2020, according to a report by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH)!
Standing at 335 metres, Guiyang Twin Towers (click for project details) is located in Huaguo Yuan of Nanming district, Guiyang. The 71-storey east tower and 69-storey west tower are connected by a six-storey commercial podium with five underground levels. The east tower is office-oriented, while the west tower is for hotel and serviced apartment uses.
The project breathes a new soul into the city, establishing itself as a new iconic landmark. The twin towers are designed with an emphasis on balance and symmetry, adding a sense of elegance to the rectilinear architecture. The façades celebrate simplicity: the outlines appear smooth and seamless from afar while a close examination reveals layers of details.
