Recently, real estate firm SOHO China unveiled its newest addition to Beijing: the Galaxy SOHO. Rising up above Beijing’s second ring road, the four main buildings look like a cross between eggs and slinkys, and are surprisingly reminiscent of New York City’s Guggenheim Museum. Connected by futuristic walkways and wrapped in sleek, white stripes, standing in the open-air lobby is an otherworldly experience. The brain child of Zaha Hadid Architects, the complex opened to the public amid considerable public interest, excited crowds, and some exotic hairdos. Below are pictures from the event:
