Suzhou Keyne Centre
Wujiang / China
Architects: Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill
The Suzhou Keyne Centre complex consists of a commercial tower and bronze-shingled residential tower replete with multiple atria and lush rooftop garden spaces; the two towers are joined by a retail podium. The grand commercial tower features an iconic “brushstroke loop” contour in its main geometry as if the light had been painted in one continuous band by the sun. This lighting design expresses the curvature of the building, a dramatic presence soaring high above the streets below. Its shape is highlighted at night by an animated façade that can be programmed for events and special occasions, yet remains invisible during the day.
