Run Run Shaw: Daniel Libeskind HK Building: environments for research and experimentation

Creative Media Centre Hong Kong

City University of Hong Kong
Date built: 2010
Design: Studio Daniel Libeskind

This is the first ‘Chinese building’ by this architect.

The Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre Hong.

An elegant, low-tech design placed at the service of high-tech invention. This nine-story crystalline building is designed to accommodate a range of flexible environments for research and experimentation. The design is by Studio Daniel Libeskind, USA.

Each space, whether self-contained or open, is unique. The dramatic central stair spirals upward with irregular twists and curves creating unexpected gathering spaces. Asymmetrical windows cut into the walls of lecture halls, classrooms and computer labs allowing for natural light to fill even the inner-most rooms of the Center.

Interactive spaces flow in and around the sound stages, recording studios, screening rooms, exhibit and performance spaces, multipurpose theater, and other areas. More expansive than traditional passageways, but more intimate than formal classrooms, the spaces are designed to encourage impromptu exchanges and spontaneous collaboration.

As the first university in Asia to offer the highest level of training in the creative media fields, the City University of Hong Kong specified and received 263,000 square feet of space, which serves approximately 2,000 students and 500 faculty and staff members. Secluded landscaped gardens to the north also contribute to the quality of life of the students and the general public alike.

Dates: 2002-10
Status: Completed
Client: City University of Hong Kong
