The main concern in setting out the buildings around a network of negative spaces is to ensure climate-responsive orientation, in order to enhance natural cross-ventilation on the scale of each building, as well as throughout the site.

The sun-path diagram for the area of Ningbo was analyzed, thus benefiting from the sun for heating and daylighting purposes. In addition to this, building openings are designed to admit diffused natural daylight from the direction of the north.

The photovoltaic panels that are integrated into the roof serve to harness solar energy, on account of their southern orientation.

The production area is modeled and simulated by software in order to study and evaluate thermal comfort and daylighting.
