Landmark 81 - Atkins China Limited is an entry in the Tall Buildings category at the 2019 World Architecture News Awards.

With a height of 462m, Landmark 81 is the tallest building in Vietnam and the 12th tallest in the world. This 81-storey development is part of one of the most prime locations of Ho Chi Minh City facing the beautiful Saigon River. The architectural design is based on a bundle of bamboo canes that symbolises the strength, diversity and fast-emergence of the city. The mixed-use development provides luxury hotel at the top, apartments in the middle and at the base of the skyscraper is a shopping centre featuring the finest retailers under one roof for top-class shopping experience. A public observation deck is located on the topmost 81st floor.

Landmark 81 achieves many construction firsts in Vietnam and is a symbol of Vietnam's emergence and technological development. Not only is the super-tall building the tallest tower in Vietnam it has many features such as lift assisted evacuation strategy and a centralised air conditioning system that are the first in Vietnam.

Landmark 81 was an extremely fast-track project was designed and documented using BIM technology. The structural design adopted a thick raft supported on barrette pile, which allowed for maximum flexibility for the subsequent development of the design even as the foundation was being constructed - a necessary requirement imposed by the fast-track design and construction programme.
