The amount of steel is about 450 tons. The overall shape of the factory is divided into two parts: the part from the upper part to the roof parapet is designed as a circular arc shape, and the side elevation is vertical to the wall. The exterior design of the office building draws on the shape of diamonds. This project not only has good architectural functions such as sun shading and rain proofing, but also has beautiful artistic effects.
