Haier is one of the largest electrical home appliance companies in the world. As a showcase of a new campus the global innovation center is developed. It houses technical libraries, a business center, an Imax cinema, a grand theatre and at the ground floor a public interactive museum with experiments.

B+G was besides the structural design also responsible for the concept for the façades that create the image of this remarkable building and its walkable roof. The building is located right at the sea-side which can be enjoyed from the viewing platform. The architectural idea of creating a building that appears to have been carved out of a solid piece of rock was achieved by providing horizontal lamellas that serve as sun protection elements at the same time.
