Steven Holl Architects has won a competition to design the headquarters of genome machine intelligence company iCarbonX in Shenzhen, China. Holl’s design sheme proposes two different typologies that are connected with four curvaceous green bridges at the bottom and top.
The new towers will include offices, apartments, laboratories, clinic, gymnasium, dining, and large urban public plaza. The form of the two towers is inspired by a study of genes and DNA, explained the firm.
The first tower, ‘Body A’ is designed as residential, while the second, ‘Body B’ includes the working program, with offices, labs, and public reception spaces.
