Beijing's New Civic Center Offers Something for Everyone

Beijing is getting cooler. The city's new civic center, known as China World Trade Center Phase 3C and designed by Andrew Bromberg at Aedas, will feature a rooftop slope made for winter sledding. During warmer months, the circular rooftop will transform into a large garden with seating areas and city views. Natural landscaping will provide shade and absorb heat. The project will complete the final phase of the 30-year-long China World Trade Center complex development.
