Sinosteel International Plaza in Tinajin

SINOSTEEL INTERNATIONAL PLAZA

As it’s still under construction, we’re sure that the Sinosteel International Plaza is not part of the Summer Olympic building series in China. This plaza was designed by Beijing-based architects MAD and the completion is expected due in the next 4 years. It has two separate buildings including 358 meter-high office tower and 88 meter adjacent hotel.

The shape of the two buildings is very simple: a rounded box. The façade is constructed from five different sizes of hexagonal windows, a traditional element in Chinese architecture. These windows flow across the building in an irregular, naturally occurring pattern: like cells multiplying. This pattern gives life to the building, changing the way it looks from different perspectives. The towers rise from a green hill which functions as the hotel’s podium, a further contrast against the hard surfaces in the rest of the Binhai New District.
