China’s already home to half of the 10 tallest buildings on the planet, but apparently they’re still not satisfied.American architecture firm Adrian Smith & Gordon Gill announced Tuesday that the firm won a competition to design a new skyscraper in Wuhan, the most populous city in central China.
The 119-level Wuhan Greenland centre will be 1,988 feet tall, likely making it the fourth-tallest building in the world when it is completed in 2016, according to AS & GG.
It’s designed to be especially aerodynamic, reducing wind-resistance and minimising the material required for its construction, which will begin later this summer.
