The digital cluster project for the Bank of Shanghai focuses on the search for energy efficiency of the entire building. To achieve this goal, several technical and architectural solutions have been put in place, including a natural cooling system - the free colling - which allows to exploit the natural ventilation by setting up plenums between each level. This system is translated into frontage by a superposition of layers interpreted in an aesthetic inspired by digital.
