Hangzhou University campus

The Chinese firm WSP Architects has completed a large university campus in Hangzhou, China. The particularity of the complex is represented by a group of buildings with irregular floors arranged around a central square.

The architects have chosen to divide the building into a series of blocks that each contain a single dedicated function, but are also connected to each other and open to surrounding colleges. The resulting composition of real estate units refers to the local vernacular by organizing the structures around a series of courtyards.

Three small towers are built around the perimeter of the central square. The spatial and structural modules allow the buildings to be adapted to create spaces suitable to the specific functional needs of each area. The modular construction creates a unified aesthetic throughout the complex, with slight changes in building heights that help distinguish the various programmatic areas. The structures are externally covered in alternating bands of stone and glass that provide a contrast of lightness and weight.
