gmp Designs Cubic Towers in Shenzhen

Architekten von Gerkan, Marg und Partner (gmp) has unveiled their design for the China Telling Communications Building, which has been recognized as the winning entry for an international competition.

The two high-rise buildings will be linked by a shared podium landscape, forming the idea of two floating cubes to identify the two different business sections of China Telling.


The buildings will be located west of the city centre, in Shenzhen. The scheme sits within a new business district known as Super Bay City. The gmp building occupies the north east corner plot at the interface between the Central Park and the wetlands which are linked to an oceanfront park.

The southern tower is 150 metres high and the northern tower stands at 100 metres. The high rises have been designed in the form of stacked cubes, with sky gardens and sky lobbies at various levels.

The podium building features smaller units consisting of several structures of different sizes. The first floor offers space for retail, while the second floor is designed as a public boulevard.
