AZL Architects, Congress Centre in Shitang (China)

 
China´s rural society is in urgent need of modernisation. New technologies and innovative techniques are requiered along with a renovation of the current building typologies. AZL Architects, a Shanghai-based architectural office, fully responds to this issue with the Centre for Internet Conferences.

This centre, located 40 km south-east of the city of Nanjing, takes over the task of developing this old-fashioned rural areas which have been growing without control for the past years. A sequence of high gable roofs give shelter to a number of smaller boxes where the activities are held, reinforcing the industrial development and giving entrepreneurs a safe and modern space to carry out their businesses. The key to the design lies in the materials. Prefabricated produts and an industrialized building system makes the whole process cheaper, quicker and more efficient.
