In the plan town and country are combined into a neighbourhood where residential, work and agricultural functions go hand in hand. The plan extends beyond the boundaries of the strategic site. The Chinese Tangram motif is used to create an urban surface partition. The areas are filled with various crops, trees and other green facilities. Elaborated, the building’s two towers have a small footprint and comprise space for research facilities and student housing. The elevations are clad with titanium panels that can generate solar energy.
