"The Globe Eco-Hub uses eco means to demonstrate its targets. Smart sensors will control varied natural light via main south façade, for different effects on the exhibitions. Photo-voltaic cells are framed within the grass covered the cap of the main volume, reducing energy expenses. By submerging onto the site soil, a use of natural coolness while ventilating the inner spaces is achieved. Drinking & washing water will be used for irrigation of the landscape surrounded the site.

The hub is planned as a multi-use urban venue and on-going endeavor, using various means for both locals as visitors."
