Situated on site ‘1301’ is the Guangzhou Commercial Showcase Complex that houses a retail exhibition area in the podium with an office showroom building sitting on top; while on site‘1401’ is the Guangzhou Nanfung International Convention and Exhibition Centre/Langham Place, a traditional, multi-floor exhibition centre in the podium with a 500-room five-star hotel atop. The design responds to the surrounding context.
