Guangdong Baosteel Building

The Pazhou masterplan for Guangzhou proposes an array of developments consisting of the inevitable podium and tower configuration. The Guangdong Baosteel Building, 140 metres tall, will be the shortest building in the masterplan, yet it can be distinctive by defying the inevitable. With a cantilever at an inclination of 32 degrees - creating a sunken courtyard as an alternative to the podium - the building would be the world's most inclined tower, an ambitious manifestation of the client's product.
