“Flowing From History to Renew”

The most dynamic and exciting companies of our time are in the technology field. The workplace culture of these companies demands spaces as innovative as their employees. In essence, they seek a careful balance of efficient space and a high-quality experience, one that encourages spontaneous interactions and creative thinking. In the high-rise condition, this has meant the campus-like concept once favored by tech firms now translates into the sky, placing outdoor and common-use spaces in close proximity to the workforce.

This program, held at the headquarters of Internet search company Baidu, easily identified by the outdoor social stairs climbing through the gap in its split façade, explores the energetic, creative and efficient new paradigms in high-rise office design.
