The 42,000 sqm Tianfu UniFuns is located in the Tianfu developmental zone of Chengdu. The area is expanding as it combines the science district and a new CBD which are connected by an ecological corridor. With this context in mind, CLOU aims to deliver a design innovation which responds to the lively prospect of the area’s development and goals.
Chengdu Unifuns presents a unique aesthetic inspired by the Rubik’s Cube. The facades features a simple module which can be developed into various combinations. White pixel modules with red details create different spatial and visual effects. During the daytime, the square-shaped volumes blend into the orderly surroundings of the community while at night, light penetrates through the openings at the joints of aluminium panels, enriching the evening cityscape with a sense of futurism.
The project seeks to integrate both technology and commercial sensibilities into the façade design by means of a modulated QR code interactive façade system. This feature accentuates the building’s presence and creates opportunities for public interactions.
