The Galaxy SOHO project in central Beijing for SOHO China is a 330 000m2 office, retail and entertainment complex that will become an integral part of the living city, inspired by the grand scale of Beijing. Its architecture is a composition of four continuous, flowing volumes that are set apart, fused or linked by stretched bridges. These volumes adapt to each other in all directions, generating a panoramic architecture without corners or abrupt transitions that break the fluidity of its formal composition.

We had to solve an a typical project, a design center, where creativity and art should be blended and be offered to the user. The shops should have the same condition, without creating differences between the front and back. After solving the first floor with two locals, we made in the second and third floor 8 offices or locals arranged beside a yard with domestic scale.

Situated in historic Greenfield’s business district and constructed of traditional materials that complement the town’s stately brick buildings, the John W. Olver Transit Center represents a significant technological departure from the past: With its dramatically limited emissions, it anticipates the future and President Obama’s executive order requiring that all new federal buildings achieve net-zero by 2030. Embedded in the building’s design are numerous strategies for energy conservation and generation. For example, the textured brick cladding the western side is a respectful nod to Greenfield’s past, but its main purpose is green: a high-tech strategy in managing the building’s exposure to afternoon sun. In parts, the brick dissolves and the façade becomes a kind of screen; these patterns control the amount of heat entering the building’s interior in summer and winter.
