John McManus, Project Director at BDP’s Glasgow studio said “ we are absolutely delighted to win such a prestigious commission in China; our strong track record and award-winning experience in higher education projects undoubtedly played an large part in this success.”

The 70,000 m2 project is for two new buildings on a key site on the university’s Jiangning Campus, and the first on the campus by a foreign architect – one is a teaching and research building, the other is an administrative building which also contains a museum and conference auditoria.

BDP’s design presents a strong architectural form that unites the two new buildings, and responds to the landscape setting of the campus masterplan, providing a dramatic symbol for the Jiangning Campus.

The sustainable design of the buildings responds to the specific climatic conditions of Jiangsu province while providing opportunities for students, staff and visitors to enjoy access to internal or external landscaped spaces throughout the year.

BDP was up against the Architectural Design Institute of Zhejiang University from Hangzhou and Pritzker Prize-winning Christian de Portzamparc from Paris. Following design presentations by each of the three shortlisted practices, BDP was awarded the commission by a unanimous vote of the presentation jury.

BDP’s appointment is to develop the project to the end of detailed design. The project is due to start on site in spring 2011.
