|Center 66, Wuxi, China (Completion year: 2014)|
This large development consists of two office towers and the city's largest shopping mall. The three striking glass atria enclosing the mall evolve as the ideal response to the site's circulation patterns, distribution of natural light, and arrangement of volumes. Achieving a LEED Gold certification is a fundamental objective of the project, so is the preservation of two historic theatre stages and a hall dating from the Ming dynasty (circa AD 1369), which are located at the heart of the site. The design of Center 66 extensively restores this historic compound whilst integrating it into a large public plaza.
