‘Gate To The East’ // Suzhou // China // RMJM
‘The design for the ‘Gate to the East’ by RMJM was inspired by the combined Chinese traditions and western influences of the projects two main designers.
The result is a mix of westernized pure form and Chinese subtlety. The ‘Gate to the East’ introduces a dramatic iconic ‘gateway’ to the city of Suzhou and represents the significance of the China in the world today. As the focal point of the new central business district, the ‘Gate to the East’ has drawn inspiration from the historic and cultural references of the traditional famous Gardens of Suzhou and the curtain wall overlays the tower like the local Suzhou silk.’
