Linked Hybrid

The Linked Hybrid complex in China by Steven Holl Architects will house 2,500 people in 700 apartments all linked at the 20th floor by a "ring" of cafés and services. The buildings will feature a geothermal cooling and heating systems, which will regulate the temperature within the eight buildings by dual pipes pumping water from 100 meters below ground, circulating the liquid between the buildings' concrete floors.
