Zaha Hadid Architects Releases Images of the Leeza SOHO Tower with the World’s Tallest Atrium.
Zaha Hadid Architects has released new images of Leeza SOHO, their mixed-use design in Beijing’s Lize Financial Business District. The project is notable for its 190-meter tall atrium, which rises the full height of the building, uniting two twisting sections which contain 172,800 square meters of office and residential space. At the base of the tower, a new transit hub straddles a subway tunnel that is currently under construction.
Zaha Hadid Architects used the surrounding environment to guide the design of the building — the split sections are being built to align with the new subway tunnel while the 45 degree twist in the rising structure is done to align with Lize Road. The 207 meter (~680 feet) Leeza SOHO will be the tallest building out of the firm’s four collaborations with SOHO China.
