Kunshan Phoenix Cultural Mall featured in World Architecture News

November 1, 2013


World Architecture News features Kunshan Phoenix Cultural Mall as an EcoWAN project. The culture park’s green roof helps mitigate the heat-island effect of the podium’s horizontal surface. The tower’s elongated facades maximize favorable southern and northern light while minimizing solar heat gain from the short east and west exposures to create a healthy working environment for PPMG staff. The Tower is clad in a solar screen composed of horizontal and vertical louvers whose spacing and depth are calibrated to shade the different faces of the slab based on sun angles.
