Sinosteel International Plaza, Tianjin

January 13 2011 — by Karina Armburg Jennings
Speirs + Major are pleased to be working with MAD Architects and Zhongtai Lighting on the Sinosteel International Plaza in Tianjian, PRC.

This 350 metre tall tower will be a landmark in a prominent development area of China. The aim is to enhance the architecture concept of a honeycomb exoskeleton using a constantly animated ‘swarm of light’. A limited and fixed amount of energy is used as the light moves across to reveal the shape and form of the building, and reinforce the sustainability credentials of the Sinosteel brand.
