Hengqin Zhuhai Supercomputing Center Project

Hengqin Supercomputing Center Project, China

As a pioneer among advanced intelligence computing platforms, the Hengqin Supercomputing Center Project consists of three phases and is expected to become one of the largest world-class AI computing centers. Phase three is jointly designed by Guangdong Architectural Design & Research Institute (GDAD) and Aedas design team, and is led by Executive Director Kelvin Hu. The project will be completed and ready for use in 2023.

Located on Huandao West Road, at the foot of Xiaohengqin Mountain, the landscape and abundant greenery provide a flourishing scenery for the project. In light of such beneficial ecology, the design manifests itself in two main concepts: advanced technology and sustainable ecology.
“Phase three is located near one of the cooling stations, where the cold energy generated by the power plant is transferred to the site through the station and underground pipes. Our key is to integrate ecology and technology into one design core in scientific innovation area. – Kelvin Hu, Executive Director of Aedas.

Responding to the compact area of ​​the site, the plot is divided into three independent multifunctional blocks according to their respective traffic flows. A mass cutting strategy is adopted to open the view corridor from both sides towards Hengqin Mountain. The subdivision of the functional body blocks creates an irregular shape, enhancing the vertical interaction within the building. These soften the volume of the building and weaken the feeling of oppression on the approaching road to blend into the environment.

Drawing inspiration from energy circuits and ecological growth, the design emphasizes geometry and movement, expressing a clean, neo-futuristic architectural language. The linear facade is inspired by integrated circuits, essential to any AI computing platform. It shapes the architecture with a simple geometric shape to create an atmospheric facade.

Using metal plates to mimic the dense lines on circuitry, the project is complete with exquisite detailing and lighting features to illuminate the area like a glowing tech cube at night. The middle blocks adopt facade mullions and insulated double glazing to create a baton glass curtain wall facade that allows sunlight to penetrate and blur the boundary with the outside environment.

Vertical ecological greening is created to form a three-dimensional landscape system, integrating architecture and nature. The jagged facade becomes a green wall with creeping plants growing between the grooves, providing a seasonal and natural wall paint to energize the area. Additionally, green public spaces are placed on rooftops to create a sustainable working environment.

Kelvin added, “We hope to create a design that infuses elements of nature with technology in a diverse and interactive environment. As such, this neo-futuristic project will be a green cubic landmark in Hengqin New District. »
