Torres TV Chongqing

Torre de Oficinas




Chongqing, China

The design for this competition features two towers with similar volumes but with subtle shape and height differences, as if they wanted to create a dialogue between them. The towers are linked with a single base that at street level is read as a single building.

As a reminder of the original topography the base of the tower facades are designed with strong slopes. This is solved with a controlled cantilevered façade that creates the illusion that the towers are floating above sloped surfaces. This strategy is used on the top part too, to create a cantilevered viewpoint so the towers seem to overlook each other.
