358m by SOM

A international competition win by SOM for the Greenland Group on Wujiang, China. Great graphics but this is nothing new but just on a different plane in terms of scale.

As an Architect you study the “human scale” and the art of designing for your context. Is this great architecture that tuns it back on the rich and long history of this country with such a western influenced design?

Not sure…
