Take A Bite Out Of UDG China’s Nanjing Office Tower!

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the  brand new Nanjing Jianye District office tower in China. And yes, THIS is also what it looks like when Sharptooth from The Land Before Time and/or the T-Rex from Jurassic Park mutate 5 times their size and take a bite out of your large, new and shiny office building.

Recently, construction began on the Nanjing Jianye District office tower in China. Designed by UDG China. The building, which has about 100,000 square meters of office space — is a multi-level complex will house hundreds of government employees. Qian Qiang, design team leader of the project, declared “the harmony between nature and creatures gives the best solution for living.”  The main focus of the project is to set up a visually strong connection between the employees’ work space and the surrounding natural environment.  In order to do that, the building features an clever, stepped vertical green roofing system so nature can be  pulled into the interior work station from the outdoors. The green roof system is also intended to control the building’s interior temperature, without any need for internal climate control.

UDG China wishes to have this project break away from traditional office podium-tower type of structure, so they broke down the typically large surface areas into smaller, more human scale dimensions. Additional features to create a less-intimidating sense of space included the use of uneven stone walls and a series of louvers, and along with a central podium splitting the main building into “two” buildings with openings at the north and south. This design consideration completes the connection between the building and the surrounding environment as it invites that same local environment toward the complex’s interior.

  1. Superb blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with
    a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any recommendations? Appreciate it!
