AMP / “Nature Factory” Industrial Complex

The project was developed in collaboration with the chinese architectural firm AMP – Architecture of Metropolitan Post from Hangzhou, hired by an industrial group (Ningbo nature technologies Inc.) for the design of an industrial complex of 160 thousand sq.m. in the Cixi Industrial District near Ningbo, province of Zhejiang (south of Shanghai). The concern of the planners of the district was to characterize the industrial installations with sustainable silutions. The basic project was developed in Brazil and the exceutive design in China, by the local Institute of design. the first industrial shed, with 40 thousand sq.m. was recently erected in steel and is in use. With rounded and aerodynamic forms to offer less resistence to the winds, this main building is organized along a central, longitudinal skylight for natural lighting and ventilation. Smaller buildings with concrete structures for the support activities and large tree-laden gardens surround this main volume, with generous internal spans to allow the easy distribution of machines and equipment.
