Simone Giostra - Greenpix, a Zero-Energy Media Wall Print E-mail

Simone Giostra & Partners Architects have designed the GreenPix - Zero Energy Media Wall - a groundbreaking project applying sustainable and digital media technology to the curtain wall of Xicui Entertainment Complex in Beijing, near the site of the 2008 Olympics.


Featuring the largest color LED display worldwide and the first photovoltaic system integrated into a glass curtain wall in China, GreenPix transforms the building envelop into a self-sufficient organic system, harvesting solar energy by day and using it to illuminate the screen after dark, mirroring a day’s climatic cycle. Arup provided engineering services for the project.

“The Media Wall will provide the city of Beijing with its first venue dedicated to digital media art, while offering the most radical example of sustainable technology applied to an entire building’s envelope to date”, said Simone Giostra.

The building will open to the public in June 2008, with a specially commissioned program of video installations and live performances by artists including: Xu Wenkai, Michael Bell Smith, Takeshi Murata, Shih Chieh Huang, Feng Mengbo and Varvara Shavrova.

Greenpix behaves like an organic system, absorbing solar energy during the day and then generating light from the same power that evening. The project promotes the uncompromised integration of sustainable technology in new Chinese architecture, responding to the aggressive and unregulated economic development currently undertaken by the industry, often at the expense of the environment.

With the support of leading German manufacturers Schueco and SunWays, Giostra and Arup developed a new technology for laminating photovoltaic cells in a glass curtain wall and oversaw the production of the first glass solar panels by Chinese manufacturer SunTech. The polycrystalline photovoltaic cells are laminated within the glass of the curtain wall and placed with changing density on the entire building’s skin. The density pattern increases building’s performance, allowing natural light when required by interior program, while reducing heat gain and transforming excessive solar radiation into energy for the media wall.

Content architecture: a new medium


GreenPix is a large-scale display comprising of 2,292 color (RGB) LED’s light points comparable to a 24,000 sq. ft. (2.200 m2) monitor screen for dynamic content display. The very large scale and the characteristic low resolution of the screen enhances the abstract visual qualities of the medium, providing an art-specific communication form in contrast to commercial applications of high resolution screens in conventional media façades.

Xicui’s opaque box-like commercial building gains the ability of communicating with its urban environs through a new kind of digital transparency. Its “intelligent skin” interacts with the building interiors and the outer public spaces using embedded, custom-designed software, transforming the building façade into a responsive environment for entertainment and public engagement.

The full integration of media/information technology with architecture in an urban context represents a new kind of communication surface devoted to unprecedented forms of art, while projecting information about the behavior and activity of the building to a wide range of distances and engaging a vast audience within the city of Beijing. The innovative use of technology and experimental approach to communication and social interaction defines new standards in the context of urban interventions worldwide, raising global interest in the integration of digital technology with architecture and reinforcing the reputation of Beijing as a centre for innovation and urban renewal.



24889-r0csimone_giostra-arup-ruogu.jpg The first digital public art space in the heart of Beijing:

GreenPix results from the ambitious collaborative talent of architects, engineers, programmers, artists and curators. The unprecedented immense scale of the display and intensity of the light will allow a generation of young artists, both local and international, to create site specific and socially relevant projects.

The new-generation showcase is a highly visible venue, both within the Beijing metropolis and internationally, and a powerful platform to display the work of emerging artists. Its high visibility will be conducive to interactive projects and artistic dialogue within and beyond China's borders. A compelling program of videos, installations and performances will be organized by a diverse team of independent curators, art institutions, galleries, media schools, corporations, collectors and benefactors, all lead by curator and producer Luisa Gui.

About the architects
The project was designed and implemented by Simone Giostra & Partners, a New York-based office with a solid reputation for its innovative curtain walls in Europe and the US, with lighting design and façade engineering by Arup in London and Beijing.

Simone Giostra graduated from the Polytechnic School of Architecture in Milan, where he earned a Master’s Degree in Architecture in 1994. He acted as Project Architect for the construction of several prestigious buildings in the US and Europe for Alvaro Siza, Raphael Vinoly, Raimund Abraham, Steven Holl and Richard Meier.

The knowledge acquired in more than 12 years of professional practice led Simone Giostra to create a company dedicated to the investigation and performance of architecture and new media. The office combines a series of existing and new professional collaborations and cross-disciplinary partnership to address the full potential of the contemporary condition. Currently, the firm is responsible for the design and implementation of some of the most innovative projects under development in China, including the Jinbao Entertainment Center in Beijing and the Jingya Grand Hotel in Wheihai.

Simone Giostra is also involved in the academic community, combining professional practice with a commitment to investigation and research. Currently, he is Visiting Professor at the Graduate School of Architecture, New Jersey Institute of Technology, and at PRATT Institute in New York. He has lectured extensively in Europe and the US, most recently at the Polytechnic School of Architecture in Milan and at the “SOM Lecture Series” in New York.
