A Thousand Yards in Beijing

Architecture studio Penda has revealed plans to create a vast network of modular building blocks at the International Horticultural Expo 2019 in Beijing, forming a 30,000-square-metre exhibition space. Penda architects Chris Precht and Dayong Sun plan to build on their experience with modular construction to create the exhibition space for Chinese property developer Vanke.

Called Thousand Yards, the structure will have a plaza at its centre, feeding a number of wide and narrow pathways. These will lead through to areas including a greenhouse, a food court, teahouses, a vegetable garden and the exhibition galleries.
