Steven Holl‘s well-known design aesthetic and green credentials have made him a favorite here at Inhabitat. His latest project was conceived as a new headquarters for Shenzen Vanke Real Estate that will house everything from office spaces and a conference center to apartments, a hotel, and even a spa. While initially the program called for a number of smaller structures, each with their own program, Steven and his team decided to create one large superstructure propped up on eight legs.
