There is a reason why the Hangzhou Waves is the winning proposal for the new dual office complex and hotel in Hangzhou, China. On one hand, it features a pixelated surface that gives it a futuristic appeal that will surely stand the test of time. On the other hand, the Hangzhou Waves boasts a smooth, undulating design that adds an organic touch.

Designed by JDS architects, Hangzhou Waves is made up of two structures that complement each other in contrasting yet mirrored ways. The hotel side has multiple terraces running from top to bottom, granting an impeccable view for guests while the office side is covered in glass, allowing amble amount of light to pour in.
