Lasting design: The ‘Infinite’ headquarters for Sina by Aedas
Inspired by the infinity symbol
Construction for the headquarters for Chinese media company, Sina, is kicking off in Beijing this month. The 'Infinite' building, which was designed by international architecture firm Aedas, has been inspired by the infinity symbol and will represent the swirling sign from above once completed.
The infinity effect has been created by designing two halves to the building which each have a central courtyard, connected via a twisted 'Sina's Eye' logo in the centre. The infinity sign motif continues on the four exterior sides of the building, where the glass facades pinch slightly in the middle. Inside the layout is open and contains a host of conference and media rooms, a library and a staff canteen, the building is due to be completed before the end of 2015.
