The whole project consists of ten buildings: N3-3 forwarding station, N3-2 forwarding station (including conference center), N1-2 forwarding station, canteen, control center, joint pump station (including exhibition center), North Silos, dry dust collector, and the parking structure.

The investigation of industrial heritages
The office part of the winter Olympic plaza is the renovation of original industrial heritages (No.1 and No.3 blast furnace forwarding station. The plan layout is also following the industrial procedure. Thus comes the main problem: How to deal with the contradiction between the industrial scale and the human scale.

In the design, some of the small scale elements are reserved, such as the boiler room and the water tower. Some middle scale structures are new added, to create a harmonious relationship in scales. At the junction space of scales, are those public center gardens, which provide elegant communication space between the office area and the natural environment.

The investigation of industrial heritages
All the concrete and steel structures are carefully reserved in the design. The original structual space is transformed into useful programs, and the vertical transportatition space is put in steel frameworks adjacent to the facade. Thus, the design honestly expresses the difference between the new and the reserved, showing our respect to the industrial heritages.

The construction of humanization
The design uses a pile of middle scale new buildings to stitch the gap between the industrial structures of large scale and the human bodies of small scale, and finally reach a organic integrity.

The articulation of Chinese culture
The outside corridor system maintains the original appearance of industrial heritage, and adds a strong characteristic of classical Chinese garden to it. The whole building group is like a vivid industrial landscape. As vision changes with circulatition, immitates the classical space sequence in Chinese gardens.
