The Hydropolis Skyscraper is a project proposed for a reclaimed land site at the Hong Kong harbor. For such a unique and challenging location, the building's aesthetic qualities are certainly representative of an unusual and intriguing design.
Lois Soo Kyung Suh and Yoonsun Hwang of PennDesign at the University of Pennsylvania wanted to produce a piece of architecture that would express "attributes of the city at multiple economic and social scales and translations." The result was this dynamic highrise with a complex facade that changes shape and texture as it climbs. Where the edifice meets the water, the Hydropolis Skyscraper lays great roots with broad curvatures. The openings in the sculptural material appear to shrink down like tightened mesh at various points towards the tip.
