The Wujin Lotus Conference Center is constructed in the image of a Lotus flower. The building is situated on a 30,000 square foot artificial lake, close to an eight-acre park in the city of Changzhou.
The Lotus Conference Center was conceived, according to the architectural firm, as an inhabited sculptural form, emerging naturally from the lake. It is home to public galleries, and conference facilities.
Geothermal energy pile foundations are an alternative energy source for heating and cooling needs. Year ‘round, this geothermic heat exchange system reduces air conditioning costs for both the Lotus above and the two-story building beneath the lake. The lotus is also naturally ventilated and utilizes evaporative cooling from the lake’s surface.
