Oriental Silicon Valley

Beijing - China

Project : Oriental Silicon Valley

Location : Beijing, China

Building Area : 100,000m2

Design Completion: 2002

Project Type : Master Plan

The design for Oriental Silicon Valley embraces the opportunities offered from a very complex and diverse program.

As a business park and convention center, This issues of connectivity and cross-pollinations are crucial to the design of this project to facilitate interaction and inspiration between the different tenants as well as guests all focused within their shared world of discovery. The essence of this interaction is the meeting center, which also used by the public. Wrapped around this showpiece is a retail mall, which supports both the guests of the center and the tenants of the project.

The office buildings focus in onto the mall and meeting center and then radiate out to provide more space, light and views of the green space beyond. The labs were located below the offices because of the need for larger floor plates as well as structurally keeping potential heavy equipment lower in the building.

Beijing New Vision Exhibition and Convention Center

Unknown location - Beijing

Current status: Approved or Under construction

The design of the Beijing New Vision Exhibition and Convention Center is based on a simple diagram and a clear geometry, resulting in a building that will serve as an inspiring symbol for the city of Beijing. In essence, the building itself is a vast lantern overlooking the city, glowing from within and inviting attention and visitors.

The facades of the complex can be illuminated in a limitless array of colors, enabling the glowing lantern-like elevations to change with every event. At the heart of the complex, a new public concourse connects the center with an adjacent pedestrian walkway and is protected from the elements by a series of immense glazed lanterns that hover overhead.

The building organizes convention and exhibition activities into two separate yet strongly related elements. The primary face, overlooking the plaza, is made up of retail, showroom and meeting components. Convention spaces overlook both the plaza and the public concourse, which separates the convention complex from the exhibition space.

Two levels of exhibition space are provided south of the concourse. Upper halls are column-free; ten to twelve sub-halls can be configured in a range of sizes. Ground-level halls are configured on an expansive 27m x 27m structural grid, which provides for a flexible booth arrangement while maximizing structural efficiency. Varied elevations for prefunction, exhibition, and loading spaces mitigate the impact of this vast complex on the surrounding neighborhood.

The design of the facility incorporates a range of sustainable principles and provides an ideal and flexible configuration for expansion. Despite its technological innovations, the facility is in fact a very simple building, composed of local materials, repetitive structural and interior elements, effective long-span structural systems and efficient building systems.
