Guangzhou Metro Authority by Perkins Eastman
Location: Guangzhou, China
Designed by Perkins Eastman
Perkins Eastman created a sweeping, grand vision for the future 50,000 sm (538,000 sf) headquarters of the Guangzhou Metro Authority. With the expansion of several metro lines, this building will enable the company to house all the planning and construction group activities under one roof. Sited on a major transit intersection, the concepts of “speed” and “progress” are incorporated into the plan, facade, and volume to provide a distinct identity for the corporate image of the Authority, while sustainable features reflect the core environmental values of the organization. The building will be developed in partnership with The Metro Design Institute in China, with construction expected to begin in mid-2010. Continue for more over at Design Scene.
