Project Description

This case takes the image of traditional Chinese dragon, in the place that takes up 7 hectares. The case has to not only meet the complex needs for such considerable technology industry, but also account for the impact upon the environment and culture. According to the demand for production and function, there are six main buildings in the park, including administration center, research center, dormitory and production line.

The architecture mimics the heat sink of engine, combining arch feature, taking the vertical element as main theme. By abstracting the primitive landscape of forest, the whole park is linked as a flat band. In reference to traditional Chinese dragon, and the seasonal changes of surroundings, the cliff of architecture is designed as irregular divisions that highlight the arch.

Considering the need of workers, there is great amount of green place in the park, and all kinds of green resources are included in living space. To remain the original skyline of the hill, the overall architecture is designed to be short.
