|Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University Administration Information Building, Suzhou, China (Completion year: 2013)|
Located in the new Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University campus in Suzhou, this main administrative building of the university gives a modern interpretation of the famous Taihu stones.
This limestone, eroded over time and available on the islands surrounding and along the shoreline of Taihu Lake, is an essential part of the Chinese culture and regarded as the scholar's stone.
The building hosts a wide range of functions, including an administration center, a learning and
resource center, a training center and a student activities center.
