Why Is Dance Of Light In China Called Most Twisted Tower?

Aedas said, ‘Inspired by the dancing aurora, we have introduced an impressive façade design through bottom-to-top connections between northern and eastern sides. The ‘dance of light’ is characterised by the juxtaposition of rectilinear forms and tower façades with double curves.’

‘When the sun rises, the curved façade shines, and the tower becomes the building of light. The podium roof extends a coherent statement of sliding twist from top to bottom, echoing with the geometry of the tower and maintaining a consistent architectural style,’ reads the description of the dance of light tower in China.

Aedas, the company behind the construction also claims that tower has a “twisting angle” of up to 8.8 degrees per floor. This is supposedly 1.5 times more than any other tower in the world. Aedes informs, ‘Vertical lines accentuate the minimalistic form and through the effect of reflection and refraction from the glass create a design statement that celebrates light as the major tool to define architecture.’
