MGM Cotai receives architecture accolade

MGM Cotai has been declared the world’s best new skyscraper in 2018 by the Emporis Skyscraper Awards, one of the most renowned architecture prizes for skyscrapers, the gaming operator announced in a statement.

Being the first building in Macau to receive this accolade, MGM Cotai, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, was selected from almost 500 new skyscrapers around the world for its spectacular and innovative design.

The Emporis Skyscraper Award jury, comprised of international architecture experts, awarded the property for its unique structure, which is based on the idea of nine Chinese jewelry boxes stacked upon each other, forming two interconnected towers.

Grant Bowie, CEO and executive director of MGM China Holdings Limited, said “With innovation ingrained in our DNA, we are extremely proud to have MGM Cotai [selected] by the jury, making the year’s best new skyscraper stand in Macau.”
