Nanjing Tower

The Nanjing Tower (Nanjing, China) and the adjacent Podium building form an architectural ensemble with the highest standards of aesthetics and user-friendliness. The floor plan was optimised with regard to the intended hotel and retail use.

High Demands on Aesthetics & User-Friendliness

Bracing is provided by a central concrete core supported by external columns. These are activated by outriggers. The eight-storey podium building surrounds the tower and forms the urban transition to the surrounding buildings.

Werner Sobek was responsible for the facade and structural engineering of the project.
