Designed by award-winning British architectural design and engineering firm Foster + Partners, DJI’s new headquarters in Shenzhen defies the traditional idea of office space to form a creative community in the sky. While it’s currently still under construction, this sci-fi looking teaser video shows that the Chinese leading drone manufacturer’s new home will be twin-towers that combine sensitive research and development spaces with office and other public functions. The towers are connected by a sky bridge, which will become another platform for showcasing DJI’s new drone technology.
The building’s floors are arranged in floating volumes cantilevered from central cores by large steel megatrusses, creating large, column-free spaces throughout, including unique quadruple-height drone flight testing labs. Meanwhile, a public exhibition space located on the ground floor will pay tribute to DJI’s extraordinary reputation for technological development, alongside a theatre for new product launches and a wide variety of staff facilities from state-of-the-art gymnasiums to robot fighting rings.
