Foster + Partners completes new DJI Sky City in Shenzhen
Foster + Partners has completed the new headquarters for DJI, the world’s leader in civilian drones and creative camera technology. Located in the Nanshan District in southwest Shenzhen, China, the two towers – 44 and 40 storeys respectively – are set to become the ‘heart of innovation’ for the company and form a creative community in the sky.
Frank Wang, Founder and CEO of DJI commented: “It took us six years to build the new DJI Headquarters, which is the result of the wisdom and determination of DJI and our valued partners. We see Sky City as a product unlike any we’ve ever made: our real home. At the beginning of a new era for DJI, we pay great attention to the growth and well-being of every employee. This starts with a work environment that is both practical and delightful.
I hope that Sky City will inspire all of us to work together and scale new heights of progress, wisdom, and possibilities to develop solutions that benefit society.”
Lord Foster, Founder and Executive Chairman, Foster + Partners, said: “Drone technology has changed the way we experience the world around us, while pushing the boundaries of aerial possibilities. I have enjoyed using DJI’s products since the beginning, so we are delighted to have partnered with DJI in creating their new headquarters in Shenzhen, which will be the company’s premier centre of research and innovation.”
