Plant and Aquaculture Pavilion

Technopark, Qujing, China, Constellation Monde, 2012

Overlooking a hilly and rustic landscape, the Plant and Aquaculture Pavilion opens generously onto an exterior market offering the products of the district. The two-storied building, with a green roof, is covered with crafted terracotta panels whose grain, arranged from the coarsest to the finest, calls to mind the red local soil where are buried all the nutrients necessary for agriculture. On one side, it houses the research laboratories and a training centre dedicated to production activities, and on the other, storage and processing spaces reserved for field products. Research and production greenhouses as well as aquaculture and pisciculture greenhouses using the latest technology complete this pavilion. Partnering architect: ARCOP
