▼面向未来的校园建筑,campus architecture towards future

Founded in June 2001, Zhejiang University Ningbo Institute of Technology (NIT) has been used more than 15 years. The old campus is unable to meet the growing demand for teaching and office works, the school decide to establish a new building. The University hopes the building will be a model to lead the future campus architectures, and also make a good model for the future campus renewal as a whole.

▼建筑主立面,main elevation of the building


建筑与景观|Architecture and Landscape


The project has superior geographic location and surroundings. The design makes fully use of the river scenery on the north side and carefully organizes a horizontal landscape axis. From the landscape corridor on the first floor to the large terrace on the second floor, from the rest and communication space on the north side to the aerial platform, the landscape design construct a multi-dimensional landscape structure based on lines and faces.

▼沿河景观立面,riverside landscape elevation


小与大|Small and Big


The site of the building is highly limited, and the usable land is very tense. Design team set all big-space classrooms on East side and West side of the building, creates more space in the middle area for users to rest and communicate.

▼建筑与环境融合,功能教室尽可能布置在建筑左右两侧,architecture fits in its environment, functional classrooms are setting as far as possible on the left and right sides of the building

▼大露台与景观面,grand terrace and landscape surface


传承与发展| Inheritance and Development


The design continues the texture of the horizontal lines of the campus buildings, twists the shape of the buildings to emphasizes the linear relationship between East and West, and also alleviates the wide rectangular volume formed by the restriction of function and land space. The layers are separated by the horizontal lines on the elevation. At the same time, strengthen the horizontal lines to form a sharp contrast with the vertical windows.

▼扭曲的造型使得厚重的建筑变得轻盈,twisted shapes make the building looks lightweight

▼综合大楼与原有建筑呼应,new building is corresponding to old buildings

▼建筑横向水平线条和竖向条窗的关系处理,the relation between horizontal line and vertical window in building


成本与品质|Cost and Quality


▼条形玻璃窗以凸显建筑品质感,the building use strip-glass-window to highlight the design quality

With the control of the low budget, the design abandoned the method of stone exterior facade, and adopted the brushed paint instead. Building’s facade avoids large area French windows, uses strip glass window combined with profile edge to ensure the durability and quality of the wall.

▼拥有大面积天窗的中庭空间,atrium with large skylight

▼内部休憩区域,interior leisure area

The design team constantly seeks the balance point of design, function and cost in all kinds of contradictions, optimizes and solves the problem as soon as possible to ensure the final quality. In some ways, it is also the continuation of the concept of “balance”. We hope that our design can provide new ideas and exploration for the future campus renovation.
