With three decades experience at the firm, Robert Whitlock is one of KPF’s foremost designers of high-rise towers, mixed-use developments, and large-scale master plans. He is the design principal for three supertalls in our exhibition: Suzhou International Finance Square, a 450-meter signature tower of the ancient Chinese city; Chongqing International Trade and Commerce Center, a 475-meter tower that anchors a development for Shui On Land in the megacity of southwestern China; and CITIC Tower, at 528 meters the tallest building in Beijing. Also known as China Zun after the flaring form of a Bronze-Age ritual vessel, the 109-story tower is the headquarters of CITIC Group, a state-owned investment company.
