First Place in Competition, 2018
Our design for the Entrance Precinct Masterplan and Creative Centre for Design focus on Place and Space, the notion that Architecture arises not out of a vocabulary imported from elsewhere, but from this special Place and culture, projected toward the future with original, inspiring Spaces for the highest level of education for generations to come. The Entrance Precinct Masterplan is designed with five concepts in mind:
Seven Quadrangles of open, green space
"H"-Plan Circulation of covered walkways, that double as near-net zero infrastructure
Campus Porosity and Social Space through portal pass-throughs and amenity programs
History Connected relation to historic houses, gardens, specimen trees and woods
Flexible Phasing + Use by vertical Forums connecting all levels as 'social condensers'
- Water retention ponds- Natural lighting
