In the impressive Raffles City residential, office, hotel and shopping complex in Chongqing, China, Crystal has just opened, a horizontal skyscraper 300 meters long and 250 meters high. It is suspended over four of the eight towers of this complex, which expects to receive more than 3,000 visitors a day.

This horizontal skyscraper, designed by Safdie Arquitects, has taken eight years of planning and construction. Inside you can find gardens, numerous gastronomic options, a bar and event space, with an infinity pool and the hotel lobby.

This platform, lined with 3,000 glass panels and almost 5,000 aluminum panels, will become the main attraction in Chongqing since the lifting of the country’s blockade.
