Futuristic, monumental, and boldly curvaceous, Beijing’s Galaxy SOHO complex cuts a striking figure on the city’s skyline. Designed by Pritzker Prize–winning architect Zaha Hadid, the new mixed-use development comprises four elliptical towers, each rising 15 stories and clad in panels of glass and reflective aluminum. A network of platforms and bridges connects the structures, linking them in one seemingly continuous coil. All together the buildings (which house offices, shops, and entertainment venues) contain nearly 3.6 million square feet of space—the biggest project yet for the famously big thinker.

The Silk Road of Pop - trailer - by smokesignalprojects

On the distant northwest edge of China lies Xinjiang, a vast region of snow-capped mountains, barren deserts and gritty market cities. Here, along the ancient Silk Road, music is one of the hottest commodities: it is vibrant, infectious, and far-reaching, permeating every corner of the province. Yet, around the music lies a troubling reality. Engaged in an identity tug-of-war, the region’s main population — the Uyghur Muslims — are gradually watching their populations dwindle as they are engulfed by a predominant Han Chinese settlement. One of the very few documentaries to come out of Xinjiang, “The Silk Road of Pop” captures the challenges of a minority group in China and the explosive music scene which results.

"My bike has no lock, and I never worry it would be stolen, thanks to my two puppies. They will guard the bike by holding the bars until they see me back."
