|University of Chicago Center in Hong Kong|
Located on Mount Davis in Hong Kong, the University of Chicago Center in Hong Kong will become the new Asian hub for the University of Chicago and its renowned Booth School of Business. The site holds the historic remnants of a military detention center and features an abundance of overgrown greenery with panoramic views of Hong Kong Harbour. The design mandate was to respect both the heritage buildings and the natural landscape. Inspired by the magnificent views, steep topography, and memories of the past, the resulting design carefully weaves the academic program around the challenging site, touching down only at points of least intrusion and bridging across and connecting the scattered heritage blocks to create an experience of unifying old and new, natural and man-made.
