To create an open public environment that allows for maximum exchange, the site has been made accessible from all directions. Two levels of public program, one on ground level and one on a sunken plaza level, cross the site diagonally, connecting three main intersections. The main entrance to 21 IMAX theatres of varying sizes is located at the center of the site, potentially creating a maximum traffic flow of pedestrian vistors thru the site. A 5000m2 urban LED canopy will emphasize the main public entrance to the site and will create an open connection to the new subway station that is located on the south-east corner of the site.

Around the sunken plaza, seven towers with a maximum height of 80 meters are organised to spatially enclose the central space. In these towers, different SOHO spaces are located. The facade of these towers loosely refer to a collection of different interlocking hands that are used in the film industry to determine screen proportions. A new type of glass in China is used, that is colourtul towards the exterior and typical grey towards the interior.
