Qintai International Tower

Architects: Adrian Smith + Gordan Gill Architecture

Throughout the site of the Qintai International Tower complex, the lighting scheme makes reference to the Qin instrument, both in terms of its physical attributes and in reference to its place in Chinese cultural history. Floodlights are carefully aimed at the tower’s facade in order to softly catch the building’s elegant central curve, drawing the eye upward toward the shape of the glowing top-floor restaurant. Sparkling water features and glowing tea pavilions create moments of brilliance amongst the dense landscape of softly illuminated curving pathways, creatively lit by fixtures concealed in the branches of flowering trees.
