From Steven Holl Architects comes Linked Hybrid, a multi-purpose complex in Beijing, China. Design Boom tells us the project is 220,000 square-meters spread over eight interconnected towers. A series of skybridges joins the multiple structures together, each with different public functions. “Instead of a sealed off private tower, the building is a porous urban space that is open to the public on all sides. The complex houses over 750 apartments, recreation facilities, a hotel, school and various public and private facilities.” The building was recently named the ‘Best Tall Building’ in Asia and Australia by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH).”
