Once again, the amazing Zaha Hadid has thrilled us with a design for an awe-inspiring Building for People. This time it is for the Chaoyangmen Soho III project, located in the city center of Beijing, China. Surrounded by the Foreign Affairs ministry and buildings of Soho I & II, the design is based on the traditional Chinese courtyard of an inner space within a building. It was conceived as a series of flowing volumes that coalesce, fuse and pull apart in the form of stretched bridges, creating a world of continuous mutual adaptation. (Wow. All that for a building?!)

Oh and here is a glimpse of the happy Chinese celebration for the launch of this project featuring a pair of spirited, interpretive dancers expressing joy, luck...(I love jazz ballet)

+ also, La Estancia Chapel
