AS+GG Design Partner Adrian Smith, FAIA said that, “The Shenzhen-Hong Kong International Center is anthropomorphic in its character, representing and honoring in an abstract way the athletes that train and struggle to have the opportunity to perform in the world-class stadiums, arenas, and natatorium directly adjacent to and integrated into the overall AS+GG master plan for this project. The result is a muscular expression in high-performance glass with layers of texture that define the elements of its shaped form.” Don’t forget to check more world’s tallest buildings.
