Chris Wilkinson:
Four Towers on Four Continents

Thu, May 7, 2015

In our continuing series of Skyscraper Seminars, in May 2015, the British architect Chris Wilkinson, founder of the London-based firm WilkinsonEyre gave a talk on his recent designs for four major skyscrapers in Guangzhou, Sydney, Toronto, and London. In 2004, WilkinsonEyre won an international competition for the commission of the East Tower in Guangzhou, the 440-meter International Finance Centre, completed in 2010. Chris Wilkinson spoke about his experience of designing four towers on four continents, each one taking a very different architectural approach, responding to its particular context and brief.
