In the capital of Henan province, China, WSP ARCHITECTS completed an exhibition centre as part of the Zhengzhou Linkong Biopharmaceutical Park. The development area comprises an international conference centre and the incubator centre.
In this context, the building emerges as an irregular spiral wrapped with perforated metal aluminium panels. The louvers composing this stripe revolving around the building are rotated 30 degrees in direction of the spirals. The waterscape on the ground floor level accompanies the visitor to the entrance of the three-storey building. Each of the three floors of the building hosts a different function: the first floor is the proper exhibition space, the second – a cantilevered structure – hosts flexible workspaces while a dining area is located atop of the building, with a view on the park.
