SOM's forthcoming Guohua Financial Tower is a 45-story office high-rise and adjacent four-story mixed-use podium that is set to rise in Ningbo, China, in 2018. A model of architectural simplicity, the visible steel-and-concrete diagrid creates a memorable diamond pattern on the building’s facade. Acting as a gateway to Ningbo’s growing East New Town, the tower connects into the nearby urban networks of the central cultural district, public greenway, surrounding canals, and central business district. Welcoming tenants and visitors from all directions, public spaces feature fine art sculptures, native plant landscaping, water features, and other public amenities.
