The International Business School Suzhou (IBSS) at Xi’An Jiaotong University (XJTLU) is situated in the ancient city of Suzhou which lies 80km to the west of Shanghai. BDP was appointed to master plan the large-scale campus to provide world-class teaching, laboratory and research facilities, and has already designed a further five faculty buildings on the site.
The design concept for the XJTLU South Campus master plan is to create a lively, friendly,energetic and inspiring learning environment. The new Business School building will look inwards facing a central lake at the heart of the campus.
The eastern fa?ade has a highly glazed external skin which allows for a visual connection between the internal environment and the external landscape around the lake.
The Five Star Lake is reflecting the school aim of providing a 5-star-level teaching standard, and is also a prominent feature of the central landscape design.
The main atrium accommodates a diverse range of social and learning spaces including a welcome and exhibition area, a café, games area, learning resource centre and an innovation hub.
