The CCTV headquarters in Beijing, China are finally completed. Designed by OMA, a leading international partnership practicing architecture, urbanism, and cultural analysis, the doors of the new construction will open this year.
The skyscraper forms a looping tower with a dramatic cantilever. The building of the 473,000 square meter structure started in 2004. Two leaning towers rose in the sky to merge with the 75-foot perpendicular extension. Once scattered around the city, the 234-meters high structure contains studios, offices, broadcasting and production facilities into a single location.
