The Centre for Sustainable Energy Technologies building in China. The building has a visitor center, research laboratories and classrooms. The pavilion stands in a lawn area along a stream that runs through the campus and features a design inspired by paper lanterns and fan-shape of the Chinese tradition. The facade of the building folds drastically to create a dynamic form. The building is entirely covered with glass with screen printed patterns that evoke historical buildings in the area.
