Metal Mesh Integrates Chinese Office Architecture to Nature

About AOE

Project: Chongqing Sunac One Central Mansion Sales Pavilion
Architecture: AOE
Year: 2017
Location: Yuzhong District, Chongqing, China

Upon being hired to renovate the architecture of a sales office in Beijing, China, Aoe's office invested in a project that visually integrates construction into nature and thus pays homage to the Chinese architectural tradition.

The integration was made thanks to a metal mesh that is in front of the facade of the building and works as a kind of armor that surrounds it. And that choice was not random. Unlike Western architecture, which is largely based on a constructive system supported by masonry, the Chinese seek to make buildings a continuation of external spaces. By putting a mesh facing out, the professional created a structure with curvilinear lines dictated by the curves of nature.
