China’s Smart Tower
China’s Pearl River Tower is the world’s first super-tall smart building. With its revolutionary aerodynamic shape, the Pearl River Tower sets the benchmark for building designs of the future.
The Pearl River Tower is one of the first of a new generation of super smart buildings. It will use less than half the energy of a conventional skyscraper and will harvest the forces of nature to make energy of its own. With a curved facade that faces directly into the wind, the Pearl River Tower in China’s Guangzhou City is shaped for performance. It’s the first ever building to combine structure with aerodynamics and the first to utilize a multitude of energy efficient technologies in one single structure. With a design specific to its environment, the Pearl River Tower symbolizes the future for super-tall building design.
