The Wangjing SOHO Project is designed as three dynamic mountain or fish-like forms, pulling energy through the site with their convex forms. The juxtaposition of the towers affords a continuously changing, elegant and fluid view from all directions. The exterior skin of the towers consists of flowing, shimmering ribbons of aluminum and glass that continuously wrap around the buildings and embrace the sky, threading through a landscape with approximately 60,000 square meters of green area open to the public. Inspired by the surrounding movement of the city, the sun, the wind, the project aims to lend a strong identity to the Wangjing area, creating a gateway-beacon that can be seen by travelers along the highway heading to or from Beijing Capital International Airport.
