Steven Holl. Linked Hybrid. Beijing. China

Steven Holl. Linked Hybrid. Beijing. China

Filmic urban space: around, over and through multifaceted spatial layers, is one of the central aims of this Hybrid Building complex sited adjacent to the old city wall of Beijing.

Current development in Beijing is almost entirely -object buildings- and free standing towers. This -city within a city- envisions urban space as the central aim –as well as all the activities and programs that can support the daily life of its inhabitants. The eight towers are linked at the twentieth floor by a ring of services.

The undersides of the cantilevered portions are colored membranes in night light glow. Misting fountains from the water retention basin activate the night light in colorful clouds, while the floating Cineplex centerpiece has partial images of its ongoing films projected on its undersides and reflected in the water.
