The Qingdao Open Hand project is a project that addresses urban issues and boils them down to the scale of a building. The project is split in 2 phases, together gathering 5 individual buildings joined into a common public space. Like 5 ‘fingers’ joined by the palm of a hand. The first phase, currently under construction, is a commercial and office entity of 180,000m2 and makes up for the 2 first and most representative ‘fingers’ of the development. The ‘palm’ of the hand is a large and open public space spreading on all the roofs to allow views to the sea.
