You Say Weird, I Say Beautiful: Xi Jinping Criticism Doesn't Ruffle Soho China
28 November 2014
Excerpt
Copyright © 2014 Dow Jones & Company, Inc.

China's building boom in recent years has resulted in an explosion of oddly-shaped towers in ever-rising skylines across the Chinese urban landscape, which have variously been compared to articles of clothing or kitchen items.

Over the weekend, another joined its ranks: an office complex designed to look like four bullet trains, launched at a glitzy event in Shanghai by property developer SOHO China. Sky SOHO, located on a sprawling 86,000 square-meter plot, complements the area's function as a transport hub, the commercial property developer said.

****************************

The opening came just weeks after Chinese president Xi Jinping publicly discouraged the building of weird architecture. In his remarks, he called for art that should "be like sunshine from the blue sky and the breeze in spring that will inspire minds, warm hearts, cultivate taste and clean up undesirable work styles."

Chinese media identified CCTV's headquarters, nicknamed "Big Pants" for its resemblance to a pair of trousers, saying such buildings shouldn't be constructed any longer. The building was designed by renowned Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas.

In a press conference Saturday, SOHO China CEO Pan Shiyi said he was aware of Mr. Xi's comments, but added that they wouldn't change his company's style.

"In my opinion, he was referring to ugly buildings," said Mr. Pan, adding that his company was determined to continue making "beautiful buildings."

****************************

Mr. Pan, who has a huge following on the social media site Weibo, said that Sky SOHO has the full support of the local government and that many admirers enjoy snapping pictures of the train-shaped complex, which was designed by the firm of Pritzker-Price winning architect Zaha Hadid.

Ms Hadid also designed Galaxy SOHO, an office and retail building shaped like an egg near Beijing's Chaoyangmen subway station and Wangjing SOHO in northeast Beijing, a three-tower complex designed to look like mountains.
