Entry Description

The development is a world-class university campus in Dongguan, where state-of-the-art R&D facilities will be provided to attract talents from across the world and drive innovation for the entire city. Comprising large-scale research and teaching facilities, multifunctional spaces, residential areas and amenities for students and researchers, the design is to create a green campus with an emphasis on openness, collaboration and productivity. Inspired by the natural attributes of the site, a central courtyard is envisioned as the heart of the campus to foster interaction and exchange.
