Covering an area of 2,500 square meters, ZedPavilion is composed of two connected carbon-neutral buildings.
Inside the four-story buildings, visitors can experience a real zero-carbon life by touring the pavilion's zero-carbon auditorium, restaurant, exhibition hall, and six different zero-carbon show houses, where all the furniture and decoration are carbon-neutral.
"The message we are trying to convey in this case is that through low-carbon development and low-carbon technology, we can make city a better place to live in and a better place to stay," said Chen. "Because in our daily life, city is the source of noise, energy consumption, traffic jams, pollution. We are trying to constitute a future city which can solve all these problems, which makes city a much better life."
Chen said that they are initiating a new scheme to build one zero-carbon pavilion in each Chinese city.
"The pavilion will be the milestone or anchor point of when the city is going to zero-carbon, because once the pavilion is built in a city, it will start generating electricity, generating water processing capability and generating waste disposal capabilities. That would set a new model of community and how people make money. Once it makes money for people, it will become popular."
