WORKac has been a part of many innovative projects; one that stands out, is their design of the Shenzhen Interchange. This is a massive skyscraper placed in a circulatory core of Southern China. WORKac wanted to celebrate the tower's position. Their approach was to "trace the diagonal line of the Metro Line #1 up through the building." In this way, "the subway can also be easily accessed directly through the main elevators of the tower, which also provides direct and convenient access for hotel guests and office workers to travel directly from the secure tower metro lobby to the upper floors."
It is a brilliantly designed structure.
WORKac is one of the innovative design firms featured in our forthcoming BOOK!
