Zaha Hadid Architects has already designed some of the most innovative buildings in China, like Galaxy SOHO and the Guangzhou Opera House, and now the firm is building Shanghai’s greenest building. ZHA has been chosen to build the new headquarters of the China Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection Group (CECEP). The company funds projects that focus on renewable energy, so it’s only natural that the new HQ will incorporate sustainability into the construction process and each element of the structure. “The client brief asked for Shanghai’s greenest building and we have responded to it by putting sustainability as the foundation of our proposal,” says Michele Pasca di Magliano, ZHA project director. “We have developed some in-house tools to study the best massing and orientation of the buildings to ensure that the passive design is extremely efficient, minimizing solar heat gain and the façade-to-floor ratios. We have also worked very carefully on a shading solution that allows views towards the river while cutting out direct solar radiation.”
