Yinchuan Greenland Center

Yinchuan, China 2019


This approximately 3,293,757 sf (306,000 sm) mixed-use complex features parallelogram plan geometry with rounded corners, which serves to distinguish the project’s two elegant 984-foot (301-meter) tall towers from the adjacent rectilinear towers seen in the Master Plan. In a nod to the literal meaning of Yinchuan, the towers are linked by a “silver river,” a podium building with a sinuous form. Rotating the towers and placing them in relation to each other creates, from two very similar towers, a sculptural composition of one form, ever evolving and changing from various vantage points. The project combines office, hotel, office executive mansions and boutique retail spaces with ample auto and bicycle parking provided below grade. Once completed, the towers will be the tallest in the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region of China.
