Kadoorie Biological Sciences Building, The University of Hong Kong

Pokfulam, Hong Kong

Designed primarily for research but with some teaching capability, this internationally award-winning building brings together the existing but formerly dispersed departments of Zoology, Botany, Ecology and Biodiversity and the University’s Institute of Molecular biology into one centre.

With ten storeys in height, this highly innovative building, not only answers the demanding architectural challenge of the site but, through its response to the issues of functionality, flexibility, safety, energy efficiency, sustainability, lifetime economy, buildability and ease of maintenance, set new standards for the design of research laboratories worldwide.
