  1. Zero Energy Building

The first feature I want to design for my project is zero-energy building. Though there are a lot of energy-efficient buildings, zero-energy buildings are the next sustainable level of the building design.


Hanergy Renewable Energy Center, China

It is the first LEED Zero Carbon Building in China.

  1. Environment

The environment is another crucial feature in building design. It is not only about the natural environment, but also the living environment.


UCSD Pepper Canyon West Living and Learning Neighborhood, USA

This building is located in La Jolla, California. The color of the building perfectly embodied with the natural environment of Pepper Canyon. Furthermore, because it is a residence, the designer creates a peaceful and enjoyable living environment. The building is bent to get more natural light; trees are plant in the balcony and on the street.
