Hangzhou City in China is famous for its historical buildings and 9 million citizens. Nowadays, the city undergoes a structural change due to the increase of numbers of the technology companies who want buildings which are more modern.
Company Lava, an Austrian-German joined company designed “The Zhejiang Gate Towers” which is a Project to be started in Hangzhou in 2017. In the Project the similarity of the towers to the Twin Towers of New York is remarkable. The Zhejiang Gate Towers became already famous previous to its construction.
The towers would not be the first buildings which show similarities to Worldwide architectural symbols. Did you know that Hangzhou has its own Eiffel Tower and a version of Manhattan is created in the city Tianjin ?
Co-Founder of Lava Tobias Walliser talked to the Guardian about the Project and said that “every two towers put next to each other would resemble the Twin Towers, we did not design the Zhejiang Gate Towers with such an inspiration”
Estimated Project finish date is 2020 and the Zhejiang Gate Towers are going to be the highest buildings in Hangzhou with 280 meters. They will be seen from visitors even outside the city and therefore are named “the Gate Towers”
