Description
The curtain wall was provided by China South Curtain Wall Co. "This is a building where form, structure, facade and services are integrated as part of a sustainable agenda. The key element in its progressive zero-energy strategy is the double facade. The design responds to the exigencies of the climate and ensures comfortable conditions in all seasons through the limited use of mechanical services. The residual heat generated by the office is recycled to heat the class rooms. The thermal mass of the building is utilized to counter changes in temperature. Ongoing research into design and sustainable servicing strategies continues and will enhance the environmental responsiveness." -http://www.china-facade.com/Domestic/TONGJI.asp
