The char­ac­ter of the area as envi­sioned by AULa is kept in its orig­i­nal shape and is sup­ported by inter­est­ing land­scape fea­tures. This idea is founded in the notion of a seed­val­ley. In the val­ley the land moves and green and trees are everywhere.

In our plan for the seed­park the parcels and pub­lic green fol­low the logic of the height dif­fer­ences. The build­ings have green bal­conies to go along with the land­scape. The major land­mark of the area is the seedbuilding.

The seed­build­ing also gives expres­sion to the move­ment of the land­scapes by a pyra­mi­dal shape. The entrance is marked by an atrium in between the tow­ers. The entrance of the val­ley is marked by a mul­ti­col­ored leave that sym­bol­izes the progress in the seed industry.

AULa sees the seed park with the mov­ing land­scape and green ele­ments as a val­ley, we also refer to Yan­gling Seed Val­ley as image as we all know about Sil­i­con Val­ley. The Val­ley is a trans­la­tion of the slop­ing land­scape and the appear­ance of the main build­ings. We think that a green char­ac­ter has to become man­i­fest in plots of land­scapes and build­ings through the trees and plants that pro­duce the seeds.

The res­i­dence tow­ers are intended for fam­i­lies and work­ers of the Seed­park and its sur­round­ings. The archi­tec­ture has to fit in with the gen­eral style of the area but can be mod­est. These are func­tion­ally not the most impor­tant build­ings in the area, yet con­sid­er­ing their height they are very well vis­i­ble from all around Yan­gling so these build­ings serve as land­marks as well.
