Facts

  • Both towers exhibit an inward incline of six degrees on each plane and are supported by braced steel tubes at the grid's perimeter.
  • The structure can be described as two towers, 45 and 51 stories each, joined together above the 37th floor and below the 10th floor. The podium bends in the opposite direction from the upper link.
  • The building has no movement joints and is one of the world's largest single structural systems; it is estimated that 20% less steel was used than in a single tower with the same gross floor area.
  • Beijing residents have nicknamed this building the "big pants".
