Science and Technology Centre - Nanning [ projects, , public ]
The organization of the Centre is guided with the permeable flows of visitors, users and employees in the vertical, diagonal and horizontal direction; five programmatic attractors are strategically positioned into the building volume in order to conduct the lively mix of the public and semi-public events. The pedestrian routing is defined with the inhabitable architectural device of the bifurcated structural columns which are shaped with the definitions of escalators, cinematic spaces, observatorium, auditorium and services. Such architectural device is designed for the new and imaginary way of experiencing science and technology whilst enhancing the lively character of the very peculiar publicness in the city of Nanning.
