Duke Kunshan University

Kunshan, China

Just west of Shanghai, this five-building complex is a model of sustainable development, organized around a vast manmade lake and connected by bridges skimming the water’s surface. Terraces, pavilions and other spaces offer water views, invite gatherings and build community. The range of settings provided across the 40-acre complex speaks to the diversity of learning style that the school will support: Facilities include an academic building with a variety of classroom configurations, a 200-bed dormitory building, a conference center and hotel, a faculty residence, and an administration building.
