中國經濟發展至今，不只帶來了繁榮的生活水平，各座城市裡極具特色的商業大樓拔地而起。北京，作為中國的首都，更致力於全球先進發展，不只商業區內大樓林立，更不斷開發新的商業區域，造就城市多樣化的面貌，去年11月由Soho China與Zaha Hadid建築事務所合作帶來的麗澤SOHO，更透過壯觀的建築景觀再度改變當地的天際線。
China’s economic development has not only brought about a prosperous standard of living, but also distinctive commercial buildings have emerged in various cities. Beijing, as the capital of China, is more committed to global advanced development. Not only is there a lot of buildings in the business district, but it also continuously develops new business districts to create a diverse face of the city. In November last year, it was developed by Soho China and Zaha Hadid Architects. The coming Lize Soho has once again changed the local skyline through the spectacular architectural landscape.
“Your success does not depend on your gender or ethnic group, it only depends on the scale of your dreams and the efforts you make to achieve your goals.” The architect Zaha Hadid kept working towards her dream throughout her life. Even though she passed away in 2016, the studio named Zaha Hadid still continues her creative spirit and continues to shine. Characteristic buildings related to her have been completed in recent years, successively bringing a new look to the global urban landscape. She was able to achieve such an achievement in her career, and his partner Patrik Schumacher (Patrik Schumacher) is absolutely indispensable. Since he joined Zaha Hadid Architects in 1998, he and Hadid have worked hard to achieve a new situation, and the two have redefined The architectural style of the 21st century. Architectural works built in the past 40 years, such as the Antwerp Port Building, Salerno Shipping Terminal, the National Museum of Contemporary Art of the 21st Century (MAXXI) in Rome, Italy, Cincinnati Contemporary Art Center, etc., reflect the avant-garde through innovative design, materials and construction methods Space concept. This time we will bring Lize SOHO to Beijing again, continuing the elegant brushwork of Zaha Hadid. Its rhythmic curves make the always cold commercial building attractive, and it is highly anticipated in the early stage of construction.
Located in the Lize Financial and Business District of Beijing, Lize SOHO is located at the intersection of Beijing Metro Lines 14 and 16, and is connected to the bus transportation network of Lize Road and Luotuowan East Road. The excellent location will drive the future urban development of Beijing. Patrick Schumacher once said in an interview: “The new business district is an indispensable part of Beijing’s intermodal city plan to adapt to growth without affecting the existing infrastructure network in the city center.” Covering an area of 172,800 square meters, Since the announcement of the competition drawings, the design drawings of Lize SOHO are continuously adjusted according to the on-site construction situation. From the outside, the entire building looks like a gorgeous glass artwork, and the transparent design of the atrium has earned it the reputation of being the world’s highest atrium design. The seemingly transparent and bright exterior wall is made up of more than 4000 special-shaped unit glass. The degree of engineering precision is once again reflected in every piece of glass and every angle angle; Lize SOHO at night , Presents an image like “eyes in the night sky”. The outer curtain wall of the twin towers is made of dark gray hollow glass, while the outer curtain wall of the atrium is made of ultra-white glass, which is projected by light to make it look like bright eyes.
The atrium is like a dancing rotating and intertwined picture. The design is inspired by the DNA double helix structure. The design team cleverly designed Lize SOHO as two streamlined single tower structures. What is amazing is that as the height of the tower increases, the diagonal axis that runs through the site by the subway tunnel is also realigned. By twisting the atrium to a 45-degree angle, the direction of the higher floors of the atrium is aligned with the main roads in the west of Beijing. One of the east-west axis of Lize Road forms a beautiful spiral structure. All the spaces in the tower have different perspectives due to the distorted posture. Through the main tower picture, a new urban space directly connected to the urban transportation network is created, and an organic order and elegance like the beauty of nature are established.
