Centre for Sustainable Energy Technologies

The building, the Centre for the development of renewable energy technologies, is located on the campus of the University of Nottingham opened in Ningbo and houses a visitor center, research laboratories and classrooms for specialization courses. The project was inspired by the idea of Chinese lanterns and fans and is divided into triangular, sloping sides. The building is entirely covered with a double skin of opaline glass. An internal atrium, which acts as a light well, activates the natural ventilation while the thermal mass of the ground floor uses geothermal energy to heat and cool the environment.
