Li Ze Tower

The site is located at Li-Ze, Beijing's new Financial District, and situated at a strategic infrastructural junction adjacent to a subway interchange station and elevated expressway connecting the 2nd and 3rd ringroad. A park-like setting surrounds the site with a boulevard to the north and a park with the future underground mall to the west. The requested development indicates a precise program that fills out the site with a 200m tall tower and a 30m tall podium. We recuperate the slab typology, rather than the typical isolated skyscraper, in an explicit x-shaped configuration in order to establish a dynamic engagement with the district and optimize the workspace.
