Steel and architecture: Ping An Finance Center

The world’s largest stainless steel façade is located in China

At 115 floors and 500 metres, the Ping An Finance Center is the fourth tallest building in the world.

Increasingly used to create imposing architectural works, thanks to its properties that make it a highly corrosion-resistant material, stainless steel also plays a leading role in this enormous and complex structure.

In fact, the building’s façade was constructed using a particularly characteristic 1,700 tonnes of 316L stainless steel, making it the largest stainless steel façade in the world.

Thanks to the use of stainless steel, the appearance of the Ping An Finance Center will remain unchanged for several decades, despite the salty atmosphere of the Shenzhen coast
