在中国天音大厦的设计竞赛中,gmp·冯·格康,玛格及合伙人建筑师事务所设计的中标方案为坐落于同 一个景观平台的两栋高层建筑。建筑形式中错落有致的悬浮立方体象征着天音通信的不同部门,反应了企业多元化的领域。

In the competition for the China Telling Communications Building, the design by Architects von Gerkan, Marg and Partners (gmp) impressed the jury with its ensemble of two high-rise buildings that are linked by a shared podium landscape. The form concept of two floating cubes, which symbolize the different business sections of China Telling Corp., reflect the world of business in its widest sense.

To the west of the city center, at the bay of Shenzhen, a new business district known as Super Bay City is being developed. The urban zoning plan for the area between the bay and the Beizhoushan Wetland Park specifies a high-density urban quarter. In future, a broad north-south axis referred to as Central Park will link the ocean- front park with the wetlands to the north and include landscaping, plazas, and cultural facilities. In the block structure of the masterplan, the China Telling Communications Building occupies the north-east corner plot at the interface between Central Park and the wetland park.

The urban zoning plan specifies high-rise buildings of up to 600 m that decrease in height along the green axis towards the north. For China Telling Corp., which specializes in hardware and software services for smart- phones and other mobile devices, gmp is developing two high-rise buildings with a shared base. The south tower is 150 meters high and the north tower 100 meters. By designing the high-rises in the form of stacked cubes, the architects are creating “sky gardens” and “sky lobbies” at various levels.

基座景观平台被划分为较小的组团,由不同大小的建筑体量构成。裙房底层沿街空间将用于商业零售, 与二层公共的漫步休闲平台共同营造了一个开放的街区。在交错的路口处,街道被扩大为广场,由此形成多变的空间序列。这些广场、街巷和路径在漫步平台层定义了城市特色风情,通过人行天桥与“中央公园”以及相邻地块交织形成步行网络,从而刻画出新的城市空间。

The podium building features smaller units and consists of several structures of different sizes. Whilst the first floor, along the road, provides space for retail outlets, the second floor—as a gallery level—is designed as a public boulevard. Where this opens out to the quarter, plazas are provided that contribute to a diverse experience of space. Creating an urban flair at the gallery level, plazas, alleys, and footpaths connect with Central Park and the neighboring plots via pedestrian bridges, and thus characterize the new urban space.
