Guangzhou Circle Building | 广州圆大厦|  Guangzhou Landmark

Guangzhou Circle Building is located at the southernmost end of the Baietan Economic Circle in Liwan District, Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province. It was designed by Joseph di Pasquale, an Italian, and was officially completed on December 16, 2013. At that time, it cost 100,000 yuan to get a good name.

With a height of 138 meters, an outer circle diameter of 146.6 meters, and an inner circle diameter of 47 meters, the building has 33 floors and is currently the largest circular building. From a distance, the shape of the building resembles a large “water wheel cart”, forming an “8” with the reflection of the Pearl River water conservancy.


Designer Joseph said that the reason for the design is that it was inspired by Eastern culture. The two circles formed by the reflection in the building and the water coincide with the number “8”, which looks like a “double-ring jade”, Which symbolizes grand vision, happy reunion, and harmony and unity.
