Building on the professional experience of NO ARCHITECTURE ’s founding principal, the concept for this 32-story 148 m tall tower centers around the client’s work as one of the preeminent creators of children’s media and theme parks in China. Translating fantasy, pixels and innovation into architectural form, the tower emerges from a 9-sqaure grid of 12x14-meter pixels with four independent cores to column-free floorplates. The design combines orthogonal ‘Vierendeel truss’ with triangulated ‘cross-bracing’ to avoid conventional ‘braced tube’ construction and eliminate awkward view obstructions typically associated with massive ‘X’-shaped perimeter beams.
