Towers like junk sailcloths

To create the Qingdao maritime activities district along the seafront (tower blocks housing insurance companies and maritime banks, customs administration complexes, ship-owner’s tower blocks, etc.), the project was inspired by the image of junks with their billowing sails returning home to port. The elements are interlinked by a planted, terraced base that in
this mixed use urban setting provides a strong architectural signal within a maritime environment, creating a social link
through its gardens, footbridges and other terraces offered to local residents.
