The University of Chicago has chosen Bing Thom Architects to design a new home for the Chicago Booth Asia Executive MBA Program in Hong Kong. The center will begin construction in October 2014 on Mount Davis, a heritage site that was originally used as a military encampment for the British Army in the 1940s and then a detention center.  

“It is a beautiful and unusually challenging site—a unique oasis with the dense urban fabric of Hong Kong. The richness of this site comes not just from its physical and natural beauty, but also from its past uses. The design must show a deep appreciation for the remnants and rooted memories of that history,” said Thom, founding partner of Bing Thom Architects.
