This iconic new addition to the Beijing skyline combines the entire process of TV making -- administration, production, broadcasting -- into a single loop of interconnected activity. Two structures rise from a common production platform, each with a different character: one is dedicated to broadcasting, the second to services, research and education. They merge at the top to create a cantilevered headquarters for management.

Built directly adjacent to the CCTV, the Television Cultural Center (TVCC) will house public programs on site including a theater, cinemas, restaurants and five-star accommodation. The building will also serve as the international broadcasting center for the 2008 Olympics.

Site:
20 hectares in new Central Business District

Program:
CCTV total 465.000m2 including administration, program offices, news production, broadcasting, program production, staff facilities, parking. TVCC total 95.000m2 including hotel, public facilities, parking and service building
