Providing a clear design direction to improve the campus experience
To reinforce the Zhejiang University of Technology as one of China’s preferred post-secondary institutions master planning was done to provide administrators with clear design direction. The university needed a sense of place; the current campus lacking intuitive way-finding and a distinct sense of design.
Kasian worked closely with the university to develop a masterplan for future improvement. The master plan design has a strong central axis, organizing the location and arrangement of the faculty buildings. Linear elements provide strong vantage points. Major design elements are located on the axes to create visual interest and heighten the garden landscape experience. Included in the master plan design are a wide range of research, exhibition, conference and amenity spaces.
