The projects are located on the huge 23,000-square-meter site in Qingdao, China, where exhibitors showcase their nature-friendly ideas. The projects combine green roofs, pavilion-like structures and long walkways that sprawl along the coastline and create intricate patterns etched into the landscape.

The green roofs of the Earthly Pond Service Center blend the complex into the site, while preserving all the existing trees. A group of rounded pavilions protrude through the flowing form and reach the neighboring roads through elongated causeways. Both projects offer a number of amenities such as restaurants, shops and gardens nestled under the green roofs.
