Project Description

The structure's outward is designed as a three-dimensional solidly curved space; with the concept of subtraction, three hemispherical concave spaces are constructed. Large plants on the first floor's terrace are planted, while the arc-shaped balcony on the second and third floors is designed as a semi-open space. Easily-access social areas are placed on each floor, making the bonds between men and nature and in between humans stronger. The arc line design extended to the fusiform rooftop built and covered by solar panels; the completeness of the circle arc converging makes the exterior look like a one-piece oval building mass. No sign of protrusions of traditional buildings could be seen; the overall presented a perfect arc line.
To remain a self-breathing function for the structure, the hallowed atrium combines with engrave-designing floors to ventilate air indoors and exhaust through the atrium. It will gain outstanding air convection, a building that breathes, blends in with nature, and eco-friendly.
