the newest addition to the SOHO china initiative ‘wangjing SOHO’ by london based zaha hadid architects will be located in beijing, china. strategically positioned between the airport and urban center, these three clustered volumes arranged to form a staggered mountain profile will act as a first impression of the city to visitors. the site’s placement within the chaoyang district provides access with rail lines, subways, highways to the surrounding region. covering a total area of 115,392 square meters, the program will host office and commercial spaces with additional low-rise ancillary commercial spaces surrounding the complex.

the tallest building will reach 200 meters while the second and third will successively descend in height. open floor plans will provide employees with optimal working conditions while the adjacent 50,000 square meters of themed landscapes support an urban garden-style office. the office lobby will contain a ten meter tall atrium for a comfortable and spacious environment.

  • It doesn’t matter if it’s appropriate or not, but for sure Beijing (developer) needs it.

  • Just a big monster.

  • Get over it. Is the whole world going to end up looking like a giant trash can. This is not working.

  • Don’t know if this is good or bad, but this building complex will get anthropomorphized every which way. A mouse hidden but for the tips of its ears and tail. Sailboats at the starting line. A shark dance. Tongues about to entwine . . .
