The 59,000-sq-m building will aim for three stars, the highest rating of China’s Green Building Programme. Digital modelling will help ZHA create natural ventilation and lighting. Solar panels and a rainwater capture system will add to the building’s sustainability.
Landscaped with plants native to the region, the museum also collects and stores rainwater for natural filtration and reuse, enabling Jingrong Lake to become an integral part of Chengdu’s sustainable drainage system that will mitigate flooding and increase biodiversity throughout the city.
The city is also the base for a massive 25-sq-km “Science City”, to be constructed along the Luxi River ecological belt, and is also the base for China Railways’ work on ultra-high speed maglev trains (see further reading).
The museum will be built on the shore of Jingrong Lake in Chengdu’s Technology Innovation Business District, begun in 2020 to house science-based industries such as intelligent manufacturing and IT.
