AIA Shanghai Events
Aside from the various understanding of ABW, we would like to use a true story to articulate from another angle of how to achieve sustainable workplace by applying ABW to workplace design projects. Also we will learn how to achieve optimum interior sound quality.
Xi’an Jiaotong–Liverpool University is located in the Suzhou Higher Education Town. The design of its Central Building was inspired by the famous Taihu stones unearthed near Suzhou city. Taihu stones are an essential element in traditional Chinese gardens and have been a favourite of Chinese scholars. The porous nature of the stones are translated into voids and spaces inside the building, with an aim to facilitate interactions and allow a series of sustainable design features. We will be touring the Central Building, designed by Dr. Andy Wen, Global Design Principal of Aedas and the Department of Architecture building.
