American firm SOM has completed a new tower in Nanchang, China, which features an exterior diagrid system that helps to shade the glass building. Rising 56 storeys, the Jiangxi Greenland Zifeng Tower is located in Gaoxin, a growing high-tech district in Nanchang.
The skyscraper was developed by the Greenland Group, one of China's largest property developers. The real estate company recently named the Jiangxi Greenland Zifeng Tower its "favourite completed high-rise building" of this year.
"It is extremely gratifying for our design team to be recognised by their many friends and colleagues within the Greenland Group," said SOM managing director Michael Pfeffer. "SOM very much appreciates their longstanding commitment to bringing great design to the skylines of China's cities."
