North-east of the city centre, not far from the banks of the Ou Jiang river, lies the new Central Organization District of the eastern China metropolis of Wenzhou. Positioned on the southern edge of the organization district, the 160 m higher Wenzhou Tower forms an impressive architectural gate situation for the entire new city development.

Wenzhou High-Rise consists of a 5-storey podium for spacious retail arcades, restaurants and spas, workplace units are at mid-height and a hotel on the upper storeys. Elevated pedestrian footbridges connect the retail region to the neighbouring buildings inside the masterplan for a continuous buying experience.

The programmatic division of the tower is legible from its façade setback and 2 major sky lobbies. A series of triangulated green pockets revolve around the periphery of the tower’s office program to give higher top quality, healthier indoor operating environments and opportunities for interior atriums and group meeting places.

The spiral of green pockets creates a rippling effect on the facade which in turn, gives dramatic reflections of the sky, landscape, and context. This multi-faceted rippling is most dramatic at the base of the tower and flattens out as the constructing ascends. The unique impact of the facade establishes a connection between the green spiral and its surrounding city context.
