Campus Masterplan

In 2005, the University of Hong Kong invited four architectural consortia, each consisting of a local architectural firm and an international partner with global experience of innovative campus development, to present proposals for the design concept of the new Centennial Campus.

This ideas generation process was intended to stimulate discussion and enable consideration of innovative approaches to meeting the University's needs over the next 10-15 years. Upon the unveiling of the four design models, a series of roving exhibitions and public briefings and consultation meetings were held both within and outside the University.

Members of the public clearly indicated that consciousness of environmental, ecological, sustainability and heritage issues, efficient use of space, effective integration and cost-effectiveness were most important in the planning and designing of the Centennial Campus.

After careful consideration of all submissions and views, the University decided that the master plan proposal from Wong & Ouyang / Sasaki Associates, Inc. offered the best fit with its strategic planning principles.

  • Designed to create a campus with a sense of place that expresses HKU's mission and strategic principles
  • Builds on the heritage of the campus buildings and landscape
  • Renders the campus more understandable and easier to navigate
  • Establishes stronger linkages with the community
  • Provides the setting for a vibrant learning community
  • Supports sustainable principles
