The Hanking Center in Shenzhen is China’s tallest steel-framed structure, rising 70 stories and 1140 feet, with over 1,000,000 square feet of office space above six levels of retail. Architects at Morphosis conceived the building as two towers separated by narrow, 35-foot long sky bridges. The primary tower houses a wide-open office space with views in all four directions, while the elevators and restrooms are located in a separate service tower. The resulting challenge for engineers at WSP was to structurally link the two towers, taking advantage of their larger combined footprint to resist overturning forces, without compromising the visual separation that is so critical to the architectural form.
