Nickl & Partner Architectural Design Consulting Co. Ltd successfully participated in the international competition for a translational medicine building in Beijing. The team in Beijing achieved second place in the competition, which included a preliminary, open application procedure.
The design provides for adding a 10-storey cubic structure with a terraced forecourt to the tradition-steeped university and hospital campus in Beijing.
A second skin of metal sunscreen elements encloses the building. Their design is modelled after a DNA double helix and gives the building an elegant, slender appearance.
