Shanghai, China, is one of the fastest-growing cities in the world. With 39 million residents, the city is the most populous in China. Therefore, the city is one of the industrial centers of the country. One of the most powerful industries in the city is construction. Such a pitch that the tallest buildings in the world are in Shanghai. The city competes with itself. Some of the buildings in Shanghai are Shanghai Tower, Shanghai World Financial Center, Jin Mao Tower, and so on. In order to maintain the city’s fame for tall buildings, Istanbul-based architecture company Hayri Atak designed a tower called Ternary Tower. The height of the building will be around 400 meters.
The Ternary Tower project consists of three undulating, separate blocks. When the three separate buildings come together, they form a transitional image in the silhouette of the city. As the buildings have a striking silhouette, the architects wish to maintain the view. Therefore, they suggest that the constructors assemble all three buildings at the same time.
The Hayri Atak team completed the Ternary Tower project in 2021. The site area of the building is 7.500 sq m, while the floor area is 45.000 sq m.
