Emergent Architecture Unveils Crystalline, Solar-Powered Sports Center for China
The complex will make extensive use of solar power through the installation of photovoltaic panels on all of its roof surfaces. In addition, Wiscombe has designed a gorgeous transparent window system based on the formation of crystal patterns in nature. The windows bend and refract light like real crystals, creating an amorphous glow from the outside. The bubbly windows spanning the entire building are fabricated from ETFE plastic, which is remarkably lightweight and can be layered to reduce heating in the summer, and heat-loss in the winter.
