About Forum 66 Tower 1

The design for Forum 66, a new mixed-use development in Shenyang, creates a daring new icon for one of northeast China’s most exciting and rapidly growing cities. Situated at the south side of City Plaza on the area’s main artery, Qing Nian Da Jie, the Forum 66 site is one of the most desirable locations in the city. The centrally located development, which includes office towers, a hotel, apartments, and a retail mall, is intended to drive energy and commerce in the surrounding region.

The architectural language of the project is based on the geometry of gentle curves, inspired by the flow of the river from which the city of Shenyang takes its name. The architects’ design features two dynamic office towers at the northern edge of the site, acting as a gateway from City Plaza to the new development and serving to reinforce the edge of the site. Forum 66 Tower 1 was conceived to be part of a family of forms united through the use of a consistent curtain-wall design and featuring angled tops.

These sleek towers are topped by glowing lanterns that appear to be floating, which sparkle during the daytime and light up the sky at night. While the office towers are gently curved in plan, they are very close to the optimal configuration of a rectangle. The proportion of the plan is broad enough to allow for a highly-efficient structural design and thus a minimized column area. The sides of the office towers and hotel that are facing the eye-shaped middle center of the complex taper inward, which enhances a sense of openness and creates an inviting spatial dynamic for the larger complex.
