China’s economy is booming, no doubt about that. And what seems more obvious than showing it off by engaging star architects, such as Zaha Hadid. She never ceases to amaze with her imaginative work, making her one of the most sought after and renowned contemporary architects. With the recent completion of the Galaxy Soho building in Beijing, she added another great work to her already impressive portfolio. The 18 storey office building complex was officially opened yesterday. Its striking organic architecture is supposed to mirror “the natural rhythms and flows of the city, of the environment and of the people have been integrated within the design to define its formal composition” according to Hadid. Have a closer look at it in the gallery above.
