The blast furnace workshop is the most important part of this project. The proposal remained core of the blast furnace, meanwhile, the team redesigned structure system, due to the existing structures are too old to adapt new functions. The new extended wide span space is for population gathering and separating, which is the vertical circulation core as well.

The design team removed the existing cover for people are able to see the whole furnace system when they look up.
