This competition calls for an iconic architecture within Hong Kong Science Park which promotes green building design and encourages a sustainable lifestyle. The competition site falls within Phase 3 development, where tech start-ups and SMEs can cultivate sustainable businesses. Each building inside Phase 3 were designed to showcase latest green technologies and sustainable building designs, targeting on zero carbon emission standard.
Instead of emphasizing on latest green technologies and advanced green building designs, like its surrounding buildings, our proposal goes back to the fundamental meaning of ‘green design’. We believe the basic principle of green design should be an awareness to nature, an appreciation to the beauty of natural forces, and a connection between man-made and nature by allowing the building to merge and grow with nature.
