The new headquarters for DJI, the world’s leading robotics company is under construction in Shenzhen. The complex with 160000 square meters area contains research and development spaces alongside offices and other public functions. The towers are also 194 meters tall. The towers are connected by a sky bridge, a dramatic aspect of the scheme that will help the company showcase its drone technology.
Located on the top of the floating volumes, the sky gardens provide private gardens for the DJI staff to enjoy. The buildings’ floors are arranged in floating volumes cantilevered from central cores by large steel mega trusses. This creates large, column-free spaces including quadruple-height drone flight testing labs. Meanwhile, a public exhibition gallery is found at ground level, alongside a theater for product launches. The construction is considered to be completed in 2021.
