Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture – Wuhan Greenland Center

Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture are the designing team behind the giant eco tower of the Wuhan Greenland Center. This is going to be the world’s 4th tallest building,  reaching a height of 1,988 feet with 119 floors. The tower’s structure is sleek and elegant, with soflty rounded corners and a dome spahed top designed to reduce wind resistance and vortex action, the main two issues super-tall towers deal with. Besides reaching for the sky, the green tower aims to provide for China’s ever increasing population, all while reducing energy use and carbon emissions.
