Steven Holl’s LEED Platinum Horizontal Skyscraper Completed!
The 1,296,456 square-foot building is less than 35 meters high. Lengthwise though, the building is a long as the Empire State Building is tall — a distance of about 440 meters. Underneath the horizontal skyscraper is a landscaped area with a number of water features which give the impression that the building is floating on water. The different programs are connected by a public path that cuts across the landscaped gardens, which were inspired by Roberto Burle Marx‘s work. Thanks to its elevated structure, the project is able to give back a public space to the city.
