WangJing 望京 Galaxy SOHO, BeiJing

Posted in respect to Iraq born architect Zaha Hadid, who sadly died today (31st March 2016).

Galaxy SOHO opened in November 2011 as an office, retail and entertainment complex.

An excellent example of a unique perspective, this building, in north east Beijing, with characteristic natural forms and curves, with futuristic outlook, opened in 2014. Her talent and bold vision will be missed by everyone.

Thank you Zaha for all you did to help make this world a better place ...
