Government Building | Jinan, China
The design for a government building and office towers was achieved with the goal of combining traditional and contemporary aesthetics. Utilizing traditional elements, such as a raised base, large colonnade, cut stone façade, and zinc roofs, the main building provides a sense of stability and timelessness, while a more modern bell tower calls toward the future.
The site, which fronts a large public greenway, provided the opportunity to sculpt a vista through the use of landscape design. A long alley of trees on either side of a grand waterscape was suggested to create a strong linear connection between the building and the greenway. This water feature extends up to the main entry of the project, drawing workers and visitors alike into the site.
This project was designed while under the employment of tvsdesign.
