Coupling of Urban-Value & Mega High-Rise: the Ping-An International Financial Tower

Fang Xie

CCDI, Shenzhen

If the city is seen as a giant business, what is driving its market value? The height of the building is clearly one of the factors. Shenzhen was the pioneer of reform and openness, and has since gained global recognition as a “city of design.“ In this respect, the emergence of Ping’an Center is indicative of the city's soaring value. Yet there are many lessons to be learned from such a development, not least of which is that the realization of remarkable height needs more inter-disciplinary cooperation between the fields of engineering and project management.
