Two 1km high landmark towers proposed for Wuhan, City of a Thousand Lakes and the capital of central China. The pair of towers reflects the dualist elements of Chinese culture in contrast to a western monolithic form.
Based on the traditional Chinese Phoenix symbol of two birds, male Feng and Huang, the plan was generated from the Yin/Yang form to represent perfectly balanced union. The Feng tower uses cutting-edge technology to ‘feed’ the Huang tower with renewable power in a symbiotic process.
Innovative technological features and symbiotic relationship will work to recycle and clean water and air to actively contribute to a reduction in local pollution.
