Nanjing Youth Science and Technology Center, 2nd Phase

The greening screen covering the whole facade gives the building a distinctive appearance. The project is one of our early practices on the gardenized space. By distributing the garden elements evenly to the facade, we hope to make every office space enjoy the green garden.

City is developing, high-rise is being built, and the green space is shrinking, what should we do? 

We divide the base into zone A and zone B. Zone A consists of cultural industry area and commercial culture area, and Zone B consists of wireless office park and ecological office area. 

The cascading exterior walls in zone A like sedimentary rock integrate with natural mountain ranges. With warm in winter and cool in summer, they reach an energy-saving effect for large-scale building space. Some light wells with different nodes scatter in the roof, and they can make people indoors fully enjoy the bright sunshine outside.

The exterior facades of office building in zone B combine sky courts with metal gauze, having the value of aesthetics and practicability. The gauze obstruct dust, let the sunshine in, and combine with the cirrus virescence, like a hanging garden penetrating into building, bring a pleasant green for internal office space.

The lake between zone A and zone B is equipped with water purification system; it offers water resource for the irrigation of roof landscape, also, it has a cooling effect for buildings in summer. It’s a way of energy-saving and environmental protection.

The internal education industry base and ecology cognition garden are the extension of Youth culture industry, they are the best place to know the ecology, spread the environmental knowledge, and experience the harmonious coexistence between human and nature).
