Galaxy Soho By Zaha Hadid | Video

A newly uploaded video from Crane.tv gives us another look at the office and retail complex known as Galaxy Soho, located in the heart of Beijing. Created by the eponymously named firm Zaha Hadid Architects, the conjoined domed buildings are a testament to Beijing’s rapid economic growth, contributing to the skyline’s evolving aesthetic while further distancing the city from its past. In the video, longtime residents regard the buildings with wide-eyed wonder, remarking on its spaceship-like appearance, while Zaha Hadid herself points out the connectedness and openness of the buildings, inspired by the concept of courtyards. Check it out below.
