The development of any country depends upon the trading and business activities. Imports and exports play an important role in stabilizing the economy of a country. It represents a significant part of GDP. The concept provided by world trade centre in not only to provide business relation but also to provide peace and stability through nations. Pakistan is rich in natural resources, agricultural and minerals and we have a lot to trade. But we have lake of opportunities. Now we have a right time to grow our economy and trade because Pakistan Gwadar Port provide the shortest access for trade and it will be new silk route from where Europe and Asia will do trading. During my research and case studies I came to know that Gwadar Port Authority is working on a project “Business Service Complex” on a area of 60 acres. On my visit over there they explained and guided me about their future projects. One of these projects is mixed use high-rise building for Business trading, banking, entertainment and apartment. It was the same project I was looking for and interested to pick for final year thesis. For designing a high rise mixed use building I chose to work on rapidly growing architectural style “Pixelism”. To understand the topic and project, available literature was reviewed. And I had a case study of Bahria icon Tower and Finance and Trade Center Karachi. The study and research outcome has been described in various chapters. Which are mentioned in contents. This study conclude to propose a mixed use 70 stories high-rise building “Economic Corridor Business Tower” to get benefits from “China Pakistan Economic Corridor” which will provide a place for investors and traders to run their business. To design a mixed use High-rise building it is necessary to deeply analyze each part and aspect of the building. For which I chose to work on “Pixelism”
