Two ZHA projects nominated for ArchDaily Building of the Year Award China

Two projects in Beijing by Zaha Hadid Architects have been nominated for the 4th edition of ArchDaily’s Building of the Year Award China; Leeza SOHO and Beijing Daxing International Airport.

Leeza SOHO’s site is diagonally dissected by an underground
subway service tunnel at the intersection of five new lines currently under
construction on Beijing’s Subway network. Straddling this tunnel, the tower’s
design divides its volume into two halves enclosed by a single facade. The
space between these two halves extends the full height of the tower, creating
the world’s tallest atrium at 194m which rotates as the tower rises to realign
the upper floors with Lize road to the north.

Beijing Daxing International Airport will initially serve 45 million passengers per year, and accommodate 72 million travellers by 2025 with further expansion for 100 million passengers and 4 million tonnes of cargo annually by 2040. The airport’s 700,000m² passenger terminal’s compact radial design allows a maximum number of aircraft to be parked directly at the terminal with minimum distances from the centre of the building, providing exceptional convenience for passengers and flexibility in operations.

The voting portal is now open for 14 days, allowing readers to select the shortlist.
