100,000 Square Meters
Wet and Dry Biotechnology Research Lab
The Qingdao Blue Biotechnology campus covers ten hectares and accommodates 100,000 square meters of lab, office, hotel and conference facilities. Parking for 1,000 cars is provided in a below grade garage and a series of screened surface lots. The pedestrian pathways, the landscaping and the building footprints are controlled and organized by a series of guiding lines and overlapping circular geometries which are derived from the patterns of water droplets and waves in motion.
The landscape design refines this pattern by incorporating vehicular, emergency, service and pedestrian pathways within a varied planting concept for passive and recreational zones. A program of sustainability includes water retention, indigenous plant materials and gray water irrigation.
