Zaha Hadid, Wangjing Soho
Commercial development will be built near Foster & Partners’ Beijing Airport
The Wangjing Soho complex near Beijing Airport has been hailed as a bright beacon to welcome visitors to Beijing.
Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the project will consist of two towers up to 200m in height embracing each other at varying angles. The interplay is enhanced by a dynamic external skin which varies in density to create a shimmering effect.
When finished the projects will have more than 521,000sq m of floor area, with three levels of retail, shopping and restaurants connected by three-storey high atrium.
The Wangjing Soho project is expected to be completed in 2014.
