International Design Competition Win for the Shenzhen East Waste-to-Energy Plant with architects Schmidt Hammer Lassen and Gottlieb Paludan.
We at schlaich bergermann partner are very happy to congratulate the team of Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects and Gottlieb Paludan Architects for winning the international competition to design the largest waste-to-energy plant in the world.
Our Shanghai team is thrilled with the competition win after having provided structural consulting support to the architects during the conceptual design for the competition phase.
“Located on the mountainous outskirts of Shenzhen the new Shenzhen East Waste-to-Energy Plant will incinerate 5,000 tonnes of waste per day - equaling one third of the waste generated by Shenzhen's 20 million inhabitants every year. The plant will utilize the most advanced technology in waste incineration and power generation and, at the same time, act as a source of education for the citizens of Shenzhen.”
The skin envelope composes the main roof structure and the surrounding facade structure to present a cost efficient design that is able to accommodate all of the plant’s components, administrative and public areas as well as contributing to the visitors’ experience.
