Architecture studio GDS Architects, USA shared their concept for the Jinshui Science and Technology Park in Zhengzhou, China which draws on elements of existing science parks and looks to successful mixed-use urban developments such as Marina Bay in Singapore and the Melbourne Docklands for inspiration.

The concept designed with a Zero Carbon footprint, clusters buildings in small groups of common use with shared facilities such as external gardens, lounges and drop-off points. The towers are to sport double skin facades with low-E glass and internal horizontal sunshades for efficient ventilation. This reduces the Park’s dependency on air conditioning units and therefore lowers running costs on an annual basis while enabling large quantities of natural light to penetrate deep into the interior spaces.
