National Trade Building in Harbin by Studio Marco Piva

Located in the densely populated chinese city of Harbin, Studio Marco Piva has designed the district’s National Trade Building. Comprising four unified towers, a hotel and three residential blocks, the cloistered development stands as a beacon for the area, a landmark that highlights the region’s growing status and reputation.

Harbin is known for its harsh and fluctuating weather patterns with average summer highs of 23°C and temperatures that fall below -40°C in winter months. Responding to these climatic conditions, the design team considered how the proposed structure could reduce energy consumption and retain heat – incorporating advanced technologies within the façade’s glazing.

The building’s textured elevations present a rhythmical pattern that produce various scenographic reflections of light and color. The distinctive and bold façades are further emphasized through LED lighting strips integrated within the scheme. Construction is set to get underway, with completion of the project scheduled for 2016.
