Change is inevitable. Buildings, streetscapes, and urban areas are dynamic places that are constantly adapting to the needs of their inhabitants, with each generation contributing uniquely to this evolution. In that context, Facet aims for changing more than a skyline. Facet is designed as an urban catalyst in which public and private life finds no boundaries. In Facet the value of free spaces is equally important as leasable spaces, it is the balance of both where one can sustain positive urban life. It is through the effective use of free space where we can bring meaningful change to urban environments. Facet is a 66-storey innovative skyscraper which will sit in the heart of Caiwuwei developing district. The Tower is a sculptural
shape that integrates all functions in one form. Facet’s image is originated by the interplay of two geometric forms: the square and the octagon. The Building’s iconic shape is formed by the triangular surface created in stacking them alternately. The idea behind the overall shape of the building comes from integrating all building function in One Move. The idea of visually connecting podium and tower in one shape; results in a striking and sculptural building.
