The form of the High-rise building comes from Chinese character "People", corresponding to the title of the media People's Daily. The triangular plan is transformed from the structure of the character "People". And the material used on outer supporter is glazed terracotta, which comes from roof of traditional Chinese temples.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This high-rise building has been one of the most important constructions in Beijing since 2008 Olympic Game, which is located in the heart of Beijing's CBD. We try to do something which will be a creative, contemporary and modern, but also reflect our culture and tradition. The streamline body is shaped by cutting an ellipsoid with three hyperboloids, which there is no dead point for all view angles. We use glazed terracotta to cover the 3D round shapes, which is traditional Chinese material.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We presented a 3 dimension organic shape or perfect form, in which there is no dead point for all view angles. More important, this shape can be defined by strict geometric calculation. Now, this building is harmonious with its surroundings. For Beijing is severe earthquake area, we design an three angle spatial trusses supports working together with its elevator core entity, while regular vertical columns and concrete floors are only secondly structural components.

CHALLENGE:
The creative Challenge: How can we fulfill the curved glass curtain wall and How can we cover the outer supporters with glazed ceramics. For curved glass curtain wall, we plug glass unit plate with movable joint, which angles between each glass can be adjusted, so that we can fulfill the curtain wall with standard size glass. And we use high strength cables to fix the glazed ceramics. Those cables are not only lighter than steel tubes, but also flexible, which perform well during earthquake.
