2008 Nanhe Jingwu (China)

Landmark building

Instead of the usual skyscrapers, it has been created a building characterized by an unexpected form, which remains indelibly imprinted in the minds of tourists visiting the city and become a hallmark.
The intention to give the building a form rich in symbolism has led to a geometric shape instead of the trivial central silhouette developed in height, typical of the skyscrapers.
The structure consists of two buildings joined at the top and curved at the base, dancing and embracing.
The two buildings are located on opposite sides of the flume and symbolize Niu Lang and Zhi Nu, the two characters of the legend of the Double Seventh, forever separated by a river.
