The project is an important part of the city planning to demonstrate energy-saving and environment-friendly transportation strategy, minimizing carbon emissions and noise and other environmental pollution. It includes the design and construction of seven standard stations. The Maglev line is located west of Beijing's Chang'an Street and crosses the Yongding River, which has nurtured a rich and profound cultural heritage and unique historical resources. The design is inspired by the rhythm of the shimmering Yongding River and the gesture of the Buddhist rosette in full bloom, combined with the structural form of the dia-grid structure, giving it a sense of technology of the times.

The building facade adopts the "intelligent breathing" curtain wall. In summer, the louvers at the bottom and top are partially opened to accelerate air convection by using the chimney wind effect to cool the building and reduce the use of air conditioning. In winter, the heat is retained, and the closed air inlet and outlet that can sense the climate retains the heat of the building through the principle of hot air rising to ensure the comfort of the users. By controlling the opening and closing of the bottom and top louvers, it is like a metronome that regulates the internal temperature. The design uses solar energy and other renewable energy sources, focuses on natural ventilation, natural lighting and shading, uses a large-span lightweight structure to enhance spatial adaptability, recycles wastewater and other series of measures to shape an ecological line. High-performance curtain wall and shading system are adopted, and passive solar design is used to maximize solar energy and adjust the internal temperature of the building through heat gain. The building is naturally lit through perforated metal panels to reduce artificial lighting.
