RMJM Shenzhen has been awarded the design of the Shenzhen Campus of Sun Yat-sen University in what’s proving to be a very productive 2017 for the company

Campus of Sun Yat-sen University

The new campus will be located in the Guangming District, where the Dongguan Yellow River meets the Gongzhu Mountain, and will house medical and science facilities for 20,000 students. Stage one of the project will cover an area of 150 hectares, with a construction area of 1,200,000 m².

The concept, developed in collaboration with Professor He Jintang of the SCUT Architectural Design and Research Institute, draws inspiration from the natural landscape surrounding the Campus as well as from Sun Yat-sen University’s long history and was developed adhering to four key themes: Mountain, River, Ritual and Learning.

The mountain shape of the development is displayed through buildings set within a band of greenery to form a structure with architecture-ecological integration. Water is represented through the sports and leisure centres on the river’s North bank. Along the North-West axis, visitors can grasp and understand the University’s history suggested by the memorial arch, Sun Yat-Sen Statue, the library and other points of interest.

Finally, the learning and research facilities will embody contemporary ideas of interdisciplinary learning methods and are arranged adjacent to public facilities. The concept for the Shenzhen Campus embodies the heritage of Sun Yat-sen University culture, with particular attention to Lingnan traditions.

“We wanted to create an innovative, vibrant and unique campus, where learning and leisure spaces are well balanced. But we also wanted the Campus to be sustainable, with a low-emission footprint, well integrated into the community and easily accessible through eco-friendly transports,” said Yang Hua, RMJM Shenzhen Principal.

“I would like to extend my special thanks to Professor He Jingtang and his team, and, of course, to our team in Shenzhen who worked tirelessly on this project,” concluded Yang Hua.
