Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre- Bashaw

This building was built in 2011 in Hong Kong.  It is an academic building on the campus of City University of Hong Kong. I is a crystalline design throughout the building including rough cut diamond inspired elements in the structural beams, lighting, windows and doors. It was designed to help spark creativity in the students and environmental research. It was designed to increase natural lighting throughout the building along with creating unique spaces to help produce collaboration and a feeling of free flowing. I enjoyed Lebeskind’s choice of colors and materials like the room above with the red walls which could have been overpowering except for the ceiling and dark flooring. I believe this would be a fun place to learn and could get a person out of their typical comfort zone allowing them to learn and interact more.
