The grid-shell of Jinji Lake Mall - Rise like a Phoenix
|Published in:||Steel Construction, 2014, n. 4, v. 7|
Jinji Lake Mall, a 290,000 m² shopping and entertainment centre, will be centrepiece to a development of several super-high-rise buildings by the waterfront of Jinji Lake in Suzhou, China. Visible from the surrounding skyscrapers, the appearance of the “fifth façade” became of paramount importance. In response, the architectural design foresaw a continuous, 35,000 m² free-form glass roof to cover the four individual buildings of the mall ensemble.
