The project is located in the high-end manufacturing cluster in the south of Zhengzhou airport economic comprehensive experimental zone. This industrial cluster is the largest R & D, production, entrepreneurship and innovation base of life science and biomedicine in Henan Province, which is invested and constructed by the government and covers an overall area of 2000 mu. Humanity and modernity meet here, and industry and life merge.
This project is Phase I in the biomedical sector of the industrial cluster area. Phase I covers an area of 181.6 mu. It is located in the north of Huanghai Road, the east of biotechnology 1st Street, the south of industrial 1st Road and the west of biotechnology 3rd Street. With a total construction area of 250000 square meters, it was officially started in May 2017, including public service platform, incubation center, pilot production group, large-scale production plant Exclusive logistics system, exhibition center and perfect living supporting facilities.

The park is divided into south area and north area according to its function. The middle life axis connects the North-South dialogue through a free walking curve, so that the park forms a unified whole. The south side of the life landscape axis is dominated by point type high-rise R & D incubation and experimental products, supplemented by living supporting groups, the north side is dominated by modular pilot test groups and plants, and the central part is dominated by the smart body of the exhibition center and high-end achievement transformation laboratory.

The clear function and streamline zoning are in line with the operation law of biomedical industry, forming a complete new pharmaceutical industrial park integrating production, life and ecology. At the same time, the park adopts the planning method of small block dense road network, which not only ensures the spatial operation efficiency, but also increases the flexibility of property assets against future market risks.

01. 展示中心 – DNA概念
Exhibition Center – DNA double helix
The design of the exhibition center is inspired by the iconic symbol in the field of modern biomedical industry – genetic DNA double helix. The exterior of the building is coiled from the ground waterscape to the roof platform through spiral continuous metal shutters, with a total of three floors. The main body is three ellipses with different functions, rotating in different directions, forming a variety of interesting spaces. The indoor and outdoor double helix structure meets the visual needs of all directions and forms an infinite continuous plastic form.

The interior design continues the design language of architectural appearance, extends the spiral curve to the indoor atrium, makes the visiting ramp spiral up to the top floor, and derives the form of wind and the ripple of water through the combination of spiral form and natural environment. It can meet the functions of achievement display, foreign exchange and professional meeting in the park, and integrates ecology, architecture and landscape.

02. 孵化大楼 – 生命律动
Incubation Building – Rhythm Of Life
In order to meet the requirements of establishing a benchmark in the emerging cities of the airport port area, all high-rise buildings are used on the side of the South District adjacent to Huanghai Road. Especially for the incubation building 80 meters high near the main entrance, the facade takes the silver white vertical aluminum plate line with the metaphorical meaning of “rhythm of life” as the main element, combined with the shape changes of the glass curtain wall in the main body and corners, shaping a landmark architectural image with a sense of future and science and technology, which is in line with the impression of biomedical industry.

The incubation building center is a public laboratory, the podium building carries large-scale conferences, and the second and third floors are a public technology service platform. Above it is an innovation and entrepreneurship base for biological innovative enterprises, which provides the whole process development power for growing enterprises. The vertical lines on the facade continue to the conference center roof on the north side of the tower at one go, forming a complete background of the entrance square. Other high-rise buildings in the South District adopt aluminum plate combined with glass curtain wall facade to form a unified and coordinated industrial community atmosphere.

03. 院士工作站 – 高端成果转化中心
Academician Workstation – High End Achievement Transformation Center
The novel and unique arc shaped green plant roof is integrated with the landscape system of the central landscape axis to realize the integrated man-made landscape architecture. This center is a high-level exclusive space tailored for the leaders of Zhengzhou biomedical industry. The high-end customized space contains the potential of high-quality investment attraction, is the weight and carrier to enhance the real industrial strength of the park, and creates a high-quality hardware environment for the introduction and integration of local resources.

Production Supporting Facilities
The North District mainly focuses on pilot test and production workshops, and meeting the process is the first goal of these buildings. The design needs to solve the process requirements such as the specific floor height, column span and structural load of the space, the location of special air conditioning equipment, the treatment and safe discharge of waste gas and wastewater, the organization of cargo transportation streamline, and the proper preservation of dangerous chemicals.
WSP ARCHITECTS has carried out planning and design in strict accordance with relevant national and industrial specifications and the practical needs of enterprises. It has adopted the characteristic property right “windmill group”, which can be divided and combined to meet the needs of enterprise experiment and production, and build a bearing platform for the whole industrial chain.

The park provides R & D and production space with different floors to meet all the needs of biomedical enterprises for office, R & D, pilot test and large-scale production. It can support the entry of various large-scale production equipment, equipped with professional landing services and the most comprehensive production guarantee. At present, Zhengzhou Linkong biomedical park, together with the world’s top teams in the field of biomedical macromolecular PD and small molecule CMC preparations, has jointly built a national scarce public technical service platform for biomedical industrialization and become a ballast for industrial technology in the park.

Combined with the block scale, the design organizes these buildings into a series of courtyards, which are filled with landscapes with different themes to meet the requirements of scientific researchers for high-quality working environment. In early summer, Zhengzhou airport biomedical park is verdant. Dynamic sports signs can be seen everywhere in the tennis court, health trails and both sides of the road in the Central Park.

The south area of the park and the exhibition center are equipped with staff restaurants. The design of the restaurant in the exhibition center introduces nature into the space and cooperates with the gurgling water of the water curtain to create a relaxed and comfortable dining atmosphere, which allows people to relax and enjoy here, a pure space with sunshine and nature. The warm wood with soft lights echoes with the green plants outside the window, forming an ecological, warm and comfortable space, full of humanistic care.
