The concept of the project is "Charm of the Pearl River", which is inspired by the Pearl River, the mother river that gave birth to Guangzhou. In terms of building facade techniques, the design uses a large number of horizontal elements that gradually change in density from bottom to top to simulate the shape of the Pearl River water. The lines of varying lengths and intricate jumps are like the waves on the Pearl River, sometimes as horizontal as a mirror, sometimes as sparkling. Sparkling, sparkling.
The ancient Chinese proverb "the sea is calm and the waves are calm" means a peaceful and prosperous age. The reason why the design uses water waves as the main element is not only to pay tribute to the beauty of the Pearl River, but also to express the hope for a bright future for the city.
