designboom recently visited the site of zaha hadid‘s wangjing SOHO project in beijing, made recently famous by its pirated counterpart being built at a competitive pace, to check up on its progress. it is well into the construction phase and making good progress as the concrete primary structure is now virtually complete and the window systems are being installed one level at a time. the reinforced concrete slab is cast like topographical contours held up by regularly-spaced columns that follow the subtle curvature of the forms. the skeleton already gives shape to the final forms that will be brought to life upon the completion of the facade.

 

for more details and info on the project be sure to visit designboom’s earlier coverage here.
