From the architects: Situated in an ecological belt of the Songshan Lake district, the new campus sprawls over a wider site area of 137,273 sqm. Phase 1 of which will provide large shared facilities, residential areas and flexible laboratory spaces to create a world class research destination.

Nick Cordingley, Design Partner commented: “Our design for the new campus is deeply rooted in the natural environment of the site, offering a people-oriented, sustainable and technology-driven campus. The main facilities are all fully integrated with the existing landscape, providing a healthy, flexible and vibrant campus for scientists and researchers.”

Inspired by the idea of creating a ‘knowledge park’, 10 Design has envisioned a central courtyard that functions as the heart of the campus to foster social interaction and knowledge exchange.

The University’s shared facilities and laboratory spaces unfold around this green space, providing equal access and visibility and delivering a first-class R&D building to attract the best research talent from across the world.

Three sculptural buildings sit at the heart of the courtyard, accommodating lecture halls and multi-purpose rooms of different scales. These spaces are designed to promote interdisciplinary communication and interaction, bringing academic vitality and innovation as a natural driver for the entire campus.

The central courtyard is also defined by a shared ‘street’ colonnade which links the research and learning spaces with the residential accommodation. It creates a pedestrian route for the campus, provides protection from the weather, and offers informal meeting spaces that enjoy views towards the central green area.

At the east end of the campus, an iconic, window-shaped building features flexible research, office and exhibition spaces on either side, framing the views beyond. A series of cascading gardens within the building’s frame create a lush green oasis.

The ‘window’ building is completed at the top by large-scale executive meeting rooms and exhibition spaces which provide views out across the campus and the Songshan Lake district. This new gateway to the campus will provide improved access to Dongguan and become a new landmark in the city.
