Hanking Center Established the City Skyline with Extreme Creativity from the world-renowned Thom Mayne
The launch of Hanking center would turn on a new page in the architecture circuit with the thought “Consumer First”. In an era when we blindly pursue the construction height and construction scale, and the development norm has been twisted. The pursuit of height seems to be the main stream of architecture development. We have been updated with the highest building constantly and we seem to pay more attention to the height of the buildings rather than the architectural aesthetics and comfort level. In the process of architecture design, Hanking Group adheres to the concept of giving back to the city and respecting our society, and the entry point of urban development and comfort level for the user as the primary standard to establish the public spaces in a artistic way and restore the relationships among the architecture, city and humans, and to establish an aesthetic and creative architecture with the most challenging structure, modern style, and a natural environment. Meanwhile, Hanking center project applies an external core tube to establish fully bright offices, which is a breakthrough for the one-sided lighting that fails to naturally brighten at the whole space. It is believed that this modern and nature-matching architecture will be a gift for the city and the society which represents the Shenzhen creative spirit.
Mr. Thom Mayne Specifies the Essence of Hanking Center Construction Design: The Hanking center project is designed by Mr. Thom Mayne who won the prestigious Pulitzer Prize that is deemed as the Nobel Prize in the architecture. The project applies the external core-tube architecture structure with special difficulties; such structure has huge difficulty in the architecture design and construction, but in return, the users can feel the all-around transparent office and enjoy the warmth of the sun and the close of the nature every minute, which indicates the Hanking center puts humanity first during the design. The entirety of the construction appearance is integrated with the commercial podium building and tower building, which distinguish itself from the traditional commercial squared-box building. Hanking center perfectly interprets the spirit essence of the creative design capital from its appearance, representing Shenzhen’s pioneering design spirit.
Hanking Group – Respect the city, Respect the Idea of “Creative Pioneers of the Real Estate”
