The 76 metre-high JCIT building located at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, close to Hung Hom station in Kowloon, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, opened earlier this year.
The tower provides home to the 1,800 students and staff that make up the university’s design school.
The design concept was to “dissolve the typical typology of the tower/podium into a more fluid composition”. Curved surfaces smoothly transition between walls, ceilings and floors, while courtyards and lobbies are dotted throughout the building.
The studio in a statement, said:
“Interior glazing and voids offer transparency and connectivity, while circulation routes and communal spaces have been arranged to encourage interaction between the many learning clusters and design disciplines.”
