Vanke Research Base Wins AIA Ohio Design Award

A proving ground for innovative construction techniques and sustainable development, Vanke Research Base makes a bold statement that design matters in the creation of the built environment, in China and around the world. It was designed to be a showcase for global ambition with signature spaces of the highest quality that foster innovation and social interaction.

Vanke's research campus is among the first developments in a new zone on the southern edge of China. Offices and exhibition spaces are housed in a building envelope that demonstrates the company's commitment to high-quality construction, notably in precast and cast-in-place architectural concrete. The project won a 2013 AIA Ohio Design Award that will be shared at the AIA Ohio Valley Region Convention on September 19th.
