The roof follows the principles of a grid shell with zones that combine hanging roof and grid action.

The Jinji Lake development is a new district with a mix of high and low-rise buildings in the neighborhood of the beautiful Jinji lake. At the core of this new development a shopping and recreation center, including a subway station, will be established.

It will be partly covered by a free-form sculptural glass roof, visually joining the two main parts of the building. The roof follows the principles of a grid shell with zones that combine hanging roof and grid action.

The covered area measures 35,000 m² with partly open, transparent or colored glass panels resting on tree-like columns which shall give the overall impression of the wings of a phoenix.

This extensive roof, 400 m in length, will rest on four independent building blocks and shall be constructed entirely without joints. The design challenge is to assimilate the earthquake design and its performance into the underlying buildings.
