Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects Propose Renewable Energy Design for PetroVietnam

Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects declared that the company has been chosen to provide design for the proposed headquarters of the national oil and gas company of Vietnam.

Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects will design a new headquarters in PetroVietnam. According to the firm's winning competition proposal, the development will encompass a 79-story office/hotel tower, left; a podium to include a petroleum museum and media center, shops and a skating rink; and a 47-story apartment tower.

The company was selected for the project after an international competitive bidding by PetroVietnam Construction Joint Stock Corporation, an auxiliary of PetroVietnam Oil and Gas Group. The project is anticipated to commence its construction operations by the end of 2011.

As per the proposed plan, the 79-storey PetroVietnam Tower will include the headquarters of the company in addition to a luxury hotel. For the purpose of creating a unique profile, the tower will have hexagonal shape at the base and triangular at the top. The 84,000m² podium located close by will incorporate a curved shape. The podium will comprise a media center, a petroleum museum, a skating rink, and shops. The opposite end of the podium will have a 47-storey housing tower with a sloping top and rounded frontages.

The planned design of the building is intended to achieve LEED Gold certification, thereby highlighting the sustainable energy interest of PetroVietnam. An installed glass wall will allow the visitors to observe the functioning of some of the energy saving systems installed in the building. A portion of the podium roof will incorporate photovoltaic panels to generate energy. The building will incorporate advanced technological expertise in its structural design to ensure stability during severe earthquakes.
