Subject of the competition was a publishing house for digital media. The building performs the following functions: It contains editorial departments of different web-based companies, the newspaper Ningbo Ri Bao, a national media platform and auxiliary areas of multi-function.
The main structure is given by two towers, connected to each other with bridges covering different functions The curve-shaped surface in the north-east and the south-west consist of a semi-transparent media-facade echoing the latest news. The main idea in this concept was to express the power of the new media one can’t restrain.
Even if we put our idea in a box it will find its way to express itself and outshine all others. Like a polished stone the hidden gem shines through the rough first impression and if the media facade of the Ningbo Digital building is being cultivated it gives an outclassing answer for the new Media Age.
