Environmental Sustainability :A Red Power Plant Dancing with the City


Project Description

The complicated industrial buildings will have potential negative impact on the surrounding countryside and beautiful urban suburbs. Under the background of rapid urbanization in China, today's urban suburbs will become vibrant urban built-up areas tomorrow. We have to imagine what kind of power plant should be presented in the future urban built-up area in order to achieve harmonious coexistence with the city.
In order to minimize the impact of the power plant on the surrounding environment, we have fully investigated the site and studied the power generation process to present a comprehensive planning of the production space, including huge gas turbines, waste heat boilers , chemical water workshops and substations, in order to design an environmentally friendly power plant by applying various advanced technical means - from pollution control to protection of city image, even opening to the city and creating an unprecedented " industrial museum" embedded into a power plant to promote study tours.
The refined industrial design language is applied in architectural design, which creates an exciting industrial scene as well as an urban landscape for public display- A red power plant dancing with the city.
The design has the following five levels of thinking:
1. Guided by comprehensive space planning, integrate various disciplines and industrial process requirement to realize efficient production activities under limited land use ;
2. Enabling environmentally friendly design strategies for power plants to enhance their environmental sustainability
3. Create a new form of industrial museum in the power plant to enhance the project's public charm and attractiveness to the city’s business environment.
4. Seek new breakthroughs in the language of industrial design, lead the aesthetics of industrial architecture , and carry out the mission of economic and cultural exchanges as well as build a bridge of communication between countries through excellent design.
5. Foresightedly connect power plant construction with urban renewal research , viewpoint to be raised to the height of urban development space, respond positively to growing cities and their spatial expansion, as well as realistic thinking on the protection and appreciation of land value
