Guangzhou Laurinda Spear Arquitectonica (1999)
The design firm famous for the Miami skyline and skyscrapers throughout South America, turns its attention East. And like her buildings in Guangzhou, Laurinda Spear honors them with her clock of the same name. The “12” and the “6” provide the beams for her numbers while the other numbers build vertically.
The Guangzhou Clock updates the traditional clock that has been seen in schools and offices for years to a contemporary interpretation, not unlike much of her architecture. Spear does not follow the historical eclecticism of the current postmodern trend, but prefers a more original and unprecedented style.
Guangzhou has a polished black aluminum case with a white dial and measures 13 ½” in diameter. It operates on one AA battery (not included).
