Zaha Hadid Architects have released new photos showcasing a ongoing construction progress of Leeza SOHO, a mixed-use bureau building in Beijing’s Lize Financial Business District. This twisting, warped constructional skeleton, that weaves together dual apart sections of a building and visually fuses them, will house the world’s tallest atrium, rising a full tallness of a building.

As a building rises, a erratic pivot by a site—defined by a transport tunnel—is re-aligned by ‘twisting’ a atrium forty 5 degrees to orientate a atrium’s aloft floors with a ancestral north-south/east-west axes on that a Chinese capital was founded.
