Among SOM's many current projects is an office and hotel complex in Shenzhen, China, now under construction for the Shen Ye Land Company and slated to be complete by mid-2017. To deliver the desired openness within a pristine envelope, the architects designed two towers—one 984 feet tall and the other 1,276 feet tall—each with a reinforced-concrete core and minimal perimeter structure, enclosed in large expanses of glass.
