Now under construction is Galaxy Soho by Zaha Hadid. Located in Beijing, China, the project – previously known as Chaoyangmen SOHO III – will become an integral part of the bustling city center. Containing a mixed program of office, retail and entertainment, the facility features an integrated environment of indoor and outdoor environments that look to continuously interconnect the building with the encompassing city.
Grand and dominant in its scale, the structure is composed of four continuous, flowing volumes, set apart and linked by a series of stretched and winding bridges. Each unique in form, the individual volumes adapt to each other in all directions, generating a unit without corners or abrupt transitions that break the fluidity of its formal composition.
