From the architect. Located centrally in the new Nanjing University Campus in Xianlin, this building aims to offer a singular expression of the dialogue between two opposing paradigmatic forms of symbolic significance: a curving roof that appears to be related to the landscape of the larger campus context, and a tower which acts as a beacon and observation point. The design exploits the techniques and economy of local construction practices as a means to develop an exceptional form. The interior follows an exceedingly compact plan of different types and sizes of rooms and auditoriums.
