Guangzhou Circle

China's Iconic Building

It is the world’s tallest circular structure loaded with symbolism of Chinese history and culture. It has a unique central hole that is almost fifty meters in diameter.

The iconic Guangzhou Circle shaped like a giant doughnut is a landmark building, located alongside the Pearl River (Zhujiang River) in the city of Guangzhou in China.

The Guangzhou Circle is the headquarter of Guangdong Hongda Xingye Group, a famous large-scale enterprise in China’s chemical and energy industry. It is also the venue of GDPE Guangdong Plastic Exchange, the world largest stock exchange for raw plastic material with more then 40 billions euros of annual turn over.

Designed by Italian architect, Joseph Di Pasquale, the Guangzhou Circle is 138 meters in height with a 50-meter diameter which puncture the heart of the 33-storey structure. In creating the Guangzhou Circle, Di Pasquale stated he was looking for a design based on Oriental psychology and perception, with the Chinese use of logographic symbols sinogram in its writing. It’s a sort of “urban logo” that works as a landmark in the same way that ideograms are used in the Chinese writing, instead of the alphabet.

” It is inspired by the strong iconic value of jade discs and numerological tradition of feng shui, in particular, the double disc of jade (bi-disk) is the royal symbol of ancient Chinese dynasty that reigned in this area around 2000 years ago,” said Joseph Di Pasquale. When reflected in the river, Guangzhou Circle shape becomes a figure of eight – a lucky number in Chinese culture and an enduring, infinity Chinese symbol of good fortune.
