Meanwhile, to promote teamwork quality and variety of space levels, it values the moderate life and leisure atmosphere. The encircled circulation and mezzanine type is the key of leading the interaction of people to people, people to space and also with visual stage impression. With the gradual change from public area to private area, the mind will change with the steps and height.

first floor plan

The in-between space among the public area and private area is open and penetrating; therefore you are able to observe corners from different angles. The higher position you are, the broader view you will see, reflecting the depth of people’s thinking. Depart from regular partition, it simultaneously divides the horizontal and the vertical, creates the various space levels which connect with people at different levels.

    Such dark interiors with so much artificial lighting, it looks more like an elaborate movie set from a scifi fantasy movie.I feel its a building that makes gestures that suggest a response to context and then goes back on itself at every single turn. Its the the architectural equivalent of cooking a dish that started as a pie and then was a bowl of co co pops but turned out a fish stew.

      Thank you for your advice.

    That entrance pavilion is like a twisted Tadao Ando design. I don’t love the interiors as much as the simple concrete elements.


  • CAVP

    I do agree with Bellhomme77 and Holcim Awards but there are some interesting materials… maybe too many materials but a great source for ideas.
