The massive corner-less complex, set in the heart of Beijing and hoped to serve as a central hub to the bustling metropolis, will house retail and entertainment facilities on the first three floors, restaurants and bars on the top few floors, and innovative office and work spaces sandwiched in between.
With grand open expansions internally woven between each superstructure, the project is meant to embody the perpetual motion displayed in traditional Chinese architectural spaces, creating a natural continuity in the rhythmic flow of movement between the buildings.
