Ternary undulating tower in China designed by Hayri Atak,
In a city famous for its unique skyscrapers, Istanbul architectural design studio Hayri Atak has revealed images of Shanghai’s undulating Ternary Tower.
The 400-meter-high tower is made up of three separate blocks,
designed to complement each other and appear integrated,
thus adding a seamless transition in the world’s third largest city.
Hayri Atak wanted to create a skyscraper with a unique experience,
in which the openings of the high sections of the Ternary Tower change in a rhythmic pattern.
Whereas, the studio’s goal is to create a unique user experience through design,
whether for residents of the tower, its neighbors, or passersby who will enjoy “the most stunning city-wide silhouette”.
Features of skyscraper design
The tower will have a reinforced concrete core surrounded by steel consoles,
to achieve the desired look and feel of the structure.
The three separate towers must be assembled simultaneously during construction to ensure that the towers are integrated.
The architectural firm behind the project used Rhinoceros 3D, Autodesk 3ds Max,
and Adobe Photoshop, to create a unique design like never before.
