SOAR is China’s first sci-tech demonstration town with the core of unmanned system industry, characterized by civil-military integration and industry cluster, realizing the fusion of science, education, industry and finance. The architectural facades are made of gray-white rhombic aluminum panels as well as wood-grain aluminum panels, creating a distinctive cut form. The large French windows at the entrance blur the boundary between the interior and the outside. The thin glass ribs offer glass curtain wall structural support, attracting people to walk in.
