Winner in Exterior Architectural Illumination
Shenzhen, China, China
The project is the Exhibition Center of Shenzhen-Hong Kong International Center, which is planned to be a multifunctional community. As the eastern core of the Greater Bay Area, its main tower will become a new landmark in the skyline of Shenzhen and even China. The Exhibition Center enjoys favorable landscape and urban resources. It faces Universiade Sports Center, adjoins the upcoming super high-rise main tower on the east and will act as the first “spokesman” of the international center to the public.
The design focuses on “interpreting the traditional Chinese culture and arts in a modern way”. During the day, the building presents a distinctive modern architectural form, while after nightfall, it’s clad in a dynamic Silk Road landscape scroll painting that rises spirally up the building, perfectly showcasing the combination between traditional Chinese culture & art and modern architecture.
The architectural form reflects the core concept of “Spiral Scroll”, with a double skin of functional curtain wall and decorative curtain wall (the scroll part). Transparent LED screens are installed between the two curtain walls to present a Silk Road landscape scroll painting.
