CCTV headquarters in Beijing

Milliken installed 40,000 square meters of Global Express Three in the CCTV headquarters building - located in Beijing - earlier this month. The main building is not a traditional tower, but a loop of six horizontal and vertical sections covering 473,000 m2 of floor space and creating an irregular grid on the building's facade with an open center. 

The building is part of a media park intended to form a landscape of public entertainment, outdoor filming areas and production studios.

The construction of the building is considered to be a structural challenge, especially because it is in a seismic zone. Because of its radical shape, it's said that a taxi driver first came up with its nickname dà kùchǎ (大裤衩), roughly translated as, "big boxer shorts!"
