Beijing International Copyright Center
Marking a significant chapter in China’s commitment to copyright protection, the Beijing International Copyright Center blends varied programs in a composition of buildings inspired by the traditional Chinese symbol, the Hui Wen.
The Hui Wen has been inscribed into the form and the texture of the buildings to evoke a sense of its meaning; a continuous unbroken chain representing the ideal of a long, healthy, and everlasting life. The tower is an iconic symbol of the Hui Wen which contains the Copyright Center’s Headquarters and is placed within a sloping garden that is the result of the interrupted street wall.
The 60-story headquarters office tower rises above the podium and the sloping park, containing the headquarters program while a series of three cantilevered glass conference and amenity spaces provide movement that overlook the Tonghui River. Below each cantilevered glass volume is an outdoor roof terrace extending the interior environment seamlessly to the outdoors. The façade expression is monolithic in its character with an undulating movement reminiscent of the Hui Wen, creating a sophisticated yet clever window pattern.
