The most efficient way to build within the urban grid is to build upwards, and the Shenzhen Interchange by WorkAC in China will manage to pull this off, while incorporating invaluable green spaces along its tall facades.

Designed by the New York based firm, the cutting-edge Shenzhen Metro Tower project merges the activity of the subway system below, the bustle of the busy streets, and the business within offices above. All the while interested in resource economy, the Shenzhen Interchange by WorkAC uses its chipped out balcony gardens to provide workers with outdoor sanctuaries and the building with the means to collect and circulate rainwater.
