Stark, angular staircases traverse the building’s sleek white interior.

Located in Xi’an’s International Port District, the building pays tribute to the region’s command over trade and industry in its clean, hypermodern design, taking the storied history of Xi’an as a departure point for innovation and advancement. The interior walls take on the texture of vertical grating and horizontal ridges as though charting the aerodynamic contours of enterprise. The curved walls that greet visitors at the entrance also display illuminated data points, blurring the distinction between technology and materiality.
