“In today’s global energy crisis, the need for innovative and sustainable intervention in today’s architecture is crucial to define its ecological role in the world economy. The ECO-SPINE embodies vitality in green and human interaction, injecting the heart of CBD with positive energy towards the future. Today’s new coins of global economy are ecological credits of low energy consumption.“

The ECO-SPINE is a sustainable platform for future development and a positive symbol for 21st Century Beijing. The office towers are transformed from Grade A to Grade A+ towers by intertwining the ECO-SPINE between them - performing as a physical and social connector between the two towers, a cultural hub of experiences and activities at the core of CBD. The backbone programs a media wall, work space, sky gardens, playgrounds, conference and recreation spaces, as well as bars, restaurants and galleries to support social activities, human interaction, and contribute to better urban living/working environments.

Located at the corner lot of Beijing Central Business District Masterplan Development, the two towers are shifted to perform as a gate. The resulting Public Plaza activates the development to welcome businessmen, tourists, and local residents in a landscaped area that protects from harsh winter winds and provide pleasant shading in the summer. The mixed-use towers are primarily Grade A Office with International Hotel and Serviced Apartments located at the top floor levels. The square shape floor plate provides balance between maximum efficient layouts and exposure to natural lighting.
