A growing district in the city of Nanchang, China has recently welcomed a hi-tech, visually deceiving building. At first glance, it may look like the Jiangxi Greenland Zifeng Tower is an ordinary office building, but a closer inspection reveals its various technological features.
The most impressive feature of the skyscraper is its "great window." The great window occupies the top third of the building and slopes inwards, which gives this visually deceiving portion of the building a unique textural quality. The visual effect is made using triangular fins that trace its way up the four faces of the tower and create a distinct, yet subtle indentation.
The Jiangxi Greenland Zifeng Tower will function as an office building and hotel, providing impressive views of the surrounding green space.
