China resumed the construction of

Modern skyscrapers has long ceased to be just buildings and have become real symbols of the era, combining the most modern technological and architectural developments. One of the most interesting for today is the project of Foster + Partners, which several years ago developed a very unusual project of a skyscraper that does not need the tabulation of water communications. All the water it will get out of the rain. There are the buildings and other very interesting features.

The Skyscraper will be built for China Merchant Bank HQ and it will be located in the Chinese city of Shenzhen. The height of the tower will be 300 meters and it will have mostly office space. The total building area is 130,000 square meters. Interestingly, the reference structural elements located on the East and West wings of the building, which will increase the interior space due to the fact that within will be no columns.

But the main feature of the structure is not in it. The fact that the company Foster + Partners does the emphasis on "autonomy" of the skyscraper. As stated by the architects, a special water harvesting system will allow you to capture and preserve up to 70% of rainwater, providing natural needs building independently. But that's not all: the structure has a special system of accumulation of heat from the sun, which will also allow you to make a partial heating of areas of the building and heating pre-made water.

"the Building will be the symbol of the Supreme status of the Bank, embodying his strong legacy and solid vision for the future." — said in an interview with the New Atlas the head of Foster+Partners, Grant Brooker.

The Structure will be connected with metro and the coast of the South China sea. In the financing of the construction of a skyscraper taking part the Chinese government. This means that with high probability we can say that the project will be completed.
