5.5.4.3. Di Wang Building, Shenzhen City, China

An example of one of the world's tallest composite buildings is the Di Wang Building in downtown Shenzhen City, China, about 1.25 miles (2 km) from Hong Kong. At 1260 ft (384 m) to the top of the masts, the building's structural system consists of a reinforced concrete core coupled to the perimeter steel frame by steel outrigger trusses at four levels. The floor plan, composed of a rectangle and two semicircles, measures 300 ft x 121.4 ft (70 m x 37 m). The building is indeed slim, with a height-to-width ratio of 8.78 in the narrow direction. A schematic plan and an elevation are shown in Fig. 5.45a and b. A photograph of the rendering is shown in Fig. 5.45c.
