Kohn Pedersen Fox’s Ping An Finance Centre in Shenzhen

Our friends at KPF | Kohn Pedersen Fox‘s supertall HQ for Ping An Insurance Company is intended to, in the architects’ words, “Become the physical and iconic centre of Shenzhen’s burgeoning central business district, the Futian District.” It is an obviously very large project which connects to both neighboring commercial and residential properties and a metro station, making it a kind of infrastructural anchor. The building is now the tallest in Shenzen; it houses over 100 office floors above a retail podium, and will accommodate 15,K workers, as well as 9,000 daily passengers. The skyscraper is anchored by eight diagonally braced stone mega-columns with shaped like chevrons. These rise 1900′, converging at the top.
