About Riviera TwinStar Square 2
In the tall building world of so many often-ridiculous gestures, this building has a fantastic balance and poise. The towers stand out for the new spatial dimension they give to the "emptiness" that lies between them. The skin of the outward faces has a clear Chinese feel, evocative of bamboo. The towers have a text-book precision to their architecture-clean, elegant, in control and embodying confidence. See Project Case Study
