Hongqiao SOHO, China

A design for a new office and retail destination that aims to provide a strong visual identity close to Hongqiao Transportation Hub near Shanghai’s city centre and Hongqiao Airport.

The building envelope is defined by  four elongated elements tied together by a sinuous retail podium and a continuous metallic ribbon that wraps them – a calligraphic gesture which will be highly recognizable. Such simplicity is contrasted by the added complexity of a ‘squeeze’ applied to the middle area.
Zaha Hadid continues to design the East. Here there is a new project by Zaha Hadid: HONGQIAO SOHO Shanghai, China (2010-2013). In a strategical position, near  to Hongqiao Transportation Hub and in proximity to Hongqiao Airport and Shanghai’s city centre. Zaha Hadid Architects’ proposal aims to provide a new identity which establishes it as a unique destination in its own right.  The building envelope is defined by four main components: four elongated elements tied together by a sinuous retail podium and continuous metallic ribbon that wraps them, and a green roof, a calligraphic gesture which will be highly recognizable.
