The pink lover’s mat inspired by the iconic Canton Tower in Guangdong, China 💗
At 604m (1982ft), the Canton Tower is now the second tallest tower and the fourth-tallest freestanding structure in the world. Read this interesting excerpt:
Mark Hemel, the IBA architect that together with his partner Barbara Kuit designed the Guangzhou TV tower, comments, ″Where most skyscrapers bear ′male′ features; being introvert, strong, straight, rectangular, and based on repetition, we wanted to create a ′female′ tower being complex, transparent, curvy and gracious.” “Our aim was to design a free-form tower with a rich and human-like identity that would represent Guangzhou as a dynamic and exciting city. We therefore wanted it to be non-symmetrical so that the building would look as if ′in movement′ and ′alive′. The result is a tower like a ′sexy female′, the very reason that earned her the nickname: ′Xiao Man Yao′, which means ‘young girl with tight waist’.”
Join a nighttime cruise along the Zhujiang river for a spectacular view of the tower, then take the lift up to the observation deck for a stunning view of the the city.
