Beijing Science Center, Beijing

The Beijing Science Center will be devoted to research, science, and future technologies. The “science cloud” design takes into account the exposed location at the intersection of the city’s third orbital road and the central north-south axis, on which attractions such as the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square are to be found. The around 130-meter long hovering roof rests on 20-meter high columns, which together create a supporting forest.
