Building: Tsinghua Ocean Center
Location: Shenzen, China
Completed: 2016
Architects: OPEN Architecture, Local Design Institute, & Shenzhen Institute of Building Research

AE Interests: Exposed structural concrete found all throughout; allows for easy maintenance and provides visual relief from surrounding stucco buildings. Academic spaces are compartmentalized with public/social spaces found in between floors. Underneath the plaza is a deep-sea research lab. Three potholes found in the main plaza allow light in from above.
