OMA presentation of the shenzhen stock exchange

on a recent trip to shenzhen, china, designboom got up close and personal with rotterdam-based practice OMA. michael korkora, associate in charge, gave an in-depth presentation on the building which is currently under construction. as towers of the past have been associated with a supporting structure that embeds and cuts itself off to the exterior public zones, this building elevates the base creating an urban connection to its surrounding context with a co-planar area of interaction and reflection. as the traditional actives of the stock exchange evolve into highly technological labs of communication, the interior programming for this space reflect the needs of workers to be exposed to green spaces, areas of celebration, collaboration and artistic expression. we have complied a video to showcase the complexity and nuances that have gone into designing the details of this tower.
