Zhonhe is a company that researches, develops, and designs new energy technologies. Their mixed use project located in the science city district of Chengdu was set to be an expression of the company's ethos and a symbol of China's green technology future. The design of the tower therefore takes energy as inspiration, and aims to represent the energy flow with its form and demonstrate new building technologies with its smart system and innovative facade.
In creating the distinctive silhouette, we used the notion of energy as our main inspiration. We strived to represent the flow of energy and its eternal transformation through our curvilinear building form. The integration of common spaces in the building podium and small green balconies along the two towers are intended to encourage people flow and exchange of thoughts and are also inspired by the energy flow.
