The CCTV Headquarters is a 234 m (768 ft), 44-storey skyscraper in the Beijing Central Business District (CBD). The tower serves as headquarters for China Central Television (CCTV).
This unique building was designed by OMA as a reinvention of the skyscraper as a loop, a design that defies the skyscraper’s typical quest for ultimate height. The main building is a loop of six horizontal and vertical sections covering 473,000 sqm (5,090,000 sq ft) of floor space, creating an irregular grid on the building’s facade with an open centre.
