YICT Headquarters
Shenzhen, China

Designed for Yantian International Container Terminals, one of the fastest growing container terminals in the region, this project was conceived of as a model of sustainable architecture. From siting the building for optimal sun exposure to intelligent building systems, several varying methods of reducing energy usage were proposed. In addition, the environmental footprint of the building was decreased by incorporating an extremely efficient structural system, such that excessive reinforcement could be eliminated.
