SHENZHEN | Shenzhen Energy Headquarters | 222m | 728ft | 43 fl | 114m | 372ft | 20 fl | Com

Shenzhen International Energy Mansion
This one is located in Futian District, next to Excellence Century Plaza.

WorldArchitectureNews article (September 2009)
BIG devise sustainable design for 200 m Shenzhen skyscraper
Harnessing nature is the defining feature of BIG's winning skyscraper design that they hope to be the initiation of a new generation of skyscrapers.
In collaboration with ARUP and Transsolar, the firm was awarded first-prize in an international competition to devise a sustainable and efficient
design for Shenzhen International Energy Mansion, the regional headquarters for the Shenzhen Energy Company.

“We propose to make the Shenzhen Energy Mansion the first specimen of a new species of office buildings that exploits the buildings interface with
the external elements - sun, daylight, humidity, wind – as a source to create maximum comfort and quality inside," said BIG's founder Bjarke Ingels.
"The Shenzhen Energy Mansion will appear as a subtle mutation of the classic skyscraper – a natural evolution rather than a desperate revolution.”

To rise 200 metres in the centre of Shenzhen, the 96,000 sq m project will be integrated within the surrounding environment and designed to
withstand the tropical climate of the city. BIG’s winning proposal was selected by the jury experts from Shenzhen Municipal Planning Bureau chaired
by Alejandro Zaera-Polo and client representatives.

BIG believe that skyscrapers need not be the energy-guzzlers of the architecture world and say that their design acknowledges the benefits of the
evolution of the skyscraper: "an economically efficient way to provide flexible, functional and well illuminated workspaces for dense populations of
professionals", whilst using the façade to both passively and actively reduce energy consumption. The design envisions combining a practical and
efficient floor plan layout with a sustainable façade that works to this effect. The façade is conceived as a folded skin that shades the office
complex from direct sunlight and integrates solar thermal panels, reducing the overall energy consumption of the building.

"By folding the façade in an origami like shape we achieve a structure with closed and open parts," BIG explain. "The closed parts provide a highly-
insulated façade, while blocking the direct sunlight. On the outside the closed parts are fitted with solar thermal heat panels that power the air
conditioning and provide dehumidification for the working spaces.

"The folded wall provides a free view through clear glass in one direction creating a condition with plenty of diffused daylight by reflecting the
direct sunlight between the interior panels. Even with direct sun from east or west, the majority of the solar rays reflect off the glass, due to the
flat angle of the window. The reflected rays increase the efficiency of solar thermal energy panels. The combination of minimal passive solar
heating and active solar panels reduce the energy consumption by more than 60%."

It looks like a huge hand pulled the outer layer of building off in the middle. I don't know if I like it or not.

Amazing design! Make it looks like the building isn't build out of metal and stone.

I saw some activity on the plot last week. Perhaps site preparation. Cranes and piles of dirt.

I have now a doubt on if it is under preparation. Righ now there are too many barracks on the site. And I'm wondering if they are not the barracks for the workers who are doing the interior design and construction of Excellence Century Plaza phase 4-7.

Definitely not Prep. All the barracks on the site are for the workers who work inside the excellence century plaza. This evening I saw them all going out of the towers to their barracks for diner break.
