mario cucinella architects: CSET building

here are images of the centre for sustainable energy technologies (CSET)
designed by the italian firm mario cucinella architects. nottingham university recently
opened the CSET building on their campus in ningbo, china. the building is china’s
first zero-carbon university building. the building’s façade features a dramatic folded pattern
which was based on paper lanterns. the exterior is made from a double skin of glass
which has been printed with a subtle historical pattern. the building achieves its zero-carbon
status through its large roof opening that shines natural light inside and creates
a natural ventilation system.
