BGB / Beijing Green Visitor Center

The Beijing Welcome Center is a project for a gateway exhibition building for a new sustainable industry park in Beijing. The building is based on the principle of manipulating a box envelope for environmental and contextual concerns in order to make a building which is low tech and low cost.

The first manipulation is to join the existing car park to the R&D center and the park loop. This allows the public to walk over the building and experience the park in a different height, first getting an overview before descending into it. The second series of manipulations are based on sustainability, blocking the cold north Beijing winter wind, promoting the cool southeast summer wind, creating a shadow to the south and moveable sun shading / solar cells to the east and west.

The building becomes a result of a series of pragmatic scientific operations making a piece of architecture which is ingrained in the site and promotes the notion of low-tech sustainability.
