On the Boards: Beijing Welcome Centre
The Beijing Welcome Centre designed by JDS Architects (Julien de Smedt) was conceived to be the gateway to a new sustainable industry park. The building envelope is manipulated to maximize environmental and contextual benefits. The number of pragmatic yet scientific adjustments to the form of the building to minimize heat gain during the winter, increase air flow, minimize glare, etc promotes the notion of a low tech sustainability.
