Shanghai surprise

Strolling through the busy airport terminal in Shanghai late last month we found LAVA's Bionic Tower on the front page of 'International Competition' published by Liaoning Science & Technology Publishing House in Shanghai.

The high-rise concept was designed in 2007 for a client in Abu Dhabi, and moves beyond the superseded modernist concept of extruded footprint and applied curtain wall. 

The tower features a fully integrated intelligent fa├žade that responds to its surrounding environment to create maximum energy efficiency and user comfort.

The tower unifies structure, space and architectural expression, similar to naturally occurring systems of organisation.
