Another futuristic project by starchitect Zaha Hadid is nearing completion in China.

German photographer Robert Herrmann has provided photos of the forthcoming Wangjing SOHO in Beijing, which to many resemble rather sensual blobs, according to Curbed.

However, technically the buildings are supposed to resemble a group of “Chinese fans that circle and embrace each other in an intricate dance.”

Construction is scheduled to end later this year. The project includes three buildings, one of which will rise 37 floors and feature offices, three floors of shops, and two basement levels of parking.

And naturally, a different Chinese developer has already started building knock-off versions in Chongqing. [Curbed] Christopher Cameron
