As part of the overall Beijing Art City mixed-use masterplan, this dynamic design offers a powerful counterfoil to its curvilinear neighbor, the Beijing Museum of Fine Art, as one of the two anchors across this new public plaza.

The highly contemporary 600-key structure features a surprising twisted form with a central atrium providing a place of intrigue and excitement for visitors and residents alike.

Externally, the facades combine radical twisting glazed forms with layered timber louvers to soften and reduce the visual scale.
