Genesis Beijing is a multifunctional urban space in the heart of Beijing, incorporating an office space, hotel, apartments, garden, riverbank theatre and extensive public cultural spaces. Rooted in the core values of equality, diversity and symbiosis, we explore the new social practice of urban and cultural construction; focus on community building, cultural development and spiritual nourishment; create community culture; and build a community cultural space with galleries, hotel, gardens and a riverbank theater, so as to build a truly organic, self-organized and open humanistic community that stimulates engagement with individuals, the surrounding communities and the wider public.
In line with a general global trend for new types of workplaces and new cultures of business emerging in co-working spaces, incubators or corporate clusters, on top of the standard services of a facility provider, GENESIS is offering a wide range of (free of charge) community events. Venues ranging from self / personal development courses, artist cooperation to intellectually inspiring talk formats, in particular about urbanization and urban issues.

Genesis Art Foundation
In 2018 a new public space designed by Tadao Ando will be launched at Genesis Beijing where Genesis Art Foundation locates. 13 galleries are designed in this building. The form and height of each floor varies across the space, which allows the museum to exhibit many of the larger scale works of various artists. In addition, the museum has a full range of functional spaces, including a uniquely designed outdoor square, audiovisual library, chamber music hall, cafe, library, and board room.
Gardens and the Riverbank Theatre
Designed by international landscape architecture firm ENEA, our gardens are core to our philosophy of mental wellbeing. They have a narrative of their own, drawing together colors and forms, and creating a geometry with the river at the center. Our Chinese pines, drawn from all over China, are living sculptures throughout the site. Within this setting is an outdoor riverbank theatre hosting a cultural programme of music, theatre and film – a space to feed the mind and soul.
Bvlgari Hotel and Residences
In 2017, Genesis Beijing became the home of the first Bvlgari Hotel in Beijing. The hotel is an integral part of our site experience - we will be inviting our guests to take part in all that is on offer. Given the wider offer of Genesis Beijing, we hope to offer visitors an experience which is more enriching than the typical hotel stay.
