Xian Jiaotong-Liverpool University Administrative Building
Aedas, the creative design team behind the awarded design Xian Jiaotong-Liverpool University Administrative Building, said, “The university is located in Suzhou, where the famous Taihu stone is unearthed. The design of the Administration Information Building was inspired by the porous nature of the Taihu stone. The pores and holes are transformed into a void structure with functional spaces linking up different sections of the building. The voids also allow the building to respond to the users and surrounding context and become a vessel for interaction. The different heights of voids also create a three-dimensional Suzhou garden within the building.” Learn more at http://www.adesignaward.com/design.php?ID=32793.
