Eight residential towers and one hotel structure interconnected by elevated, public bridges constitute the Linked Hybrid mixed-use project in Beijing. This open city within a city also features a cinematheque, a kindergarten, parks, and other attractions. The structural and architectural features of this 220,000 m2 pedestrian-oriented development range from the practical to the whimsical and in many ways exemplify the various challenges and rewards that face designers working on major projects in China.
