The design of the Shenzhen Campus for the Chinese University of Hong Kong intends to create a sustainable learning environment for 7000 students. By zoning the campus as ‘Academic Clusters’, ‘Campus Green’ and ‘Natural Terrain’, communities are formed in order to promote interaction between research, learning, working and living while the existing ridgelines and the lushly vegetated nature are preserved as much as possible.
The campus suggests interconnectivity, convenience of circulations, multiple points of contact, array of activities with diverse choices, encouraging multi-disciplinary cross-overs and innovative creativities.
