A Floating Office in China

Located in the Jiangsu Province of China, the ‘Building On The Water’ was built by Portuguese architects Álvaro Siza and Carlos Castanheira.

Located on a 100,000-square metre artificial lake at New Salt Industrial Park, the floating office is formed in the shape of an elongated 300-metre curve and is mostly made from white exposed concrete. It took four years to design and construct the building.
