From up close, translucent vertical fins mark segments of the facade of the Ningbo Bank of China Headquarters, spaced regularly to follow the curves of the building’s rounded corners. From afar, the fins create a seamless and animated silhouette on the city’s skyline. The design of the tower, which utilizes optimized perimeter columns and a downward draping geometry, reduces structural torque while also minimizing the amount of construction materials needed.
