FGP Atelier’s show-stopping array of projects include the near-completion of two cutting-edge towers located in Shanghai, China. The Office Campus is set to serve as the regional offices of the British brand Land Rover and features two towers plus an urban complex that includes custom fritted glass pattern resembling bamboo. This unique, natural pattern builds on the regional significance of bamboo while offering a stunning combination of natural light and privacy.

“My work is about going places, and experiencing them holistically—the light, the materials, and the way they make you feel all factor into my work,” said Gonzalez Pulido in a statement.
