• Guangzhou Science Museum

    The Guangzhou Science Museum is designed to provide maximum thermal comfort creating a urban microclimate. Evaporative cooling pipes are seamlessly integrated and woven into the vertical shading lamellas to reduce temperatures surrounding the museum. In the interior large interior green wall and chilled water wall surfaces dehumidify the air and cool the cellular atrium spaces.
