Raffles City is a mixed-use development located near the Qiantang River in Hangzhou. Situated 180 kilometres south-west of Shanghai, Hangzhou is one of China's most prosperous cities, especially renowned for its scenic landscapes. The movement in the nearby Qiantang River is reflected in the tower design that features a wave-like motion. These concentric waves increase in their dynamism, starting calmly at the base and building up more vigorously along the vertical axis. The urban context and the landscape of the city are consolidated in one gesture. In the design of the two towers, the urban face of the project twists towards the landscape, while the landscape aspect, in turn, acknowledges the urban context.
