RMJM’s submission for the Sun Yat-Sen University Masterplan was one of the top shortlisted designs in this international competition. Located in Xiangzhou District, considered the cultural center of Zhuhai City, the campus is surrounded by high class educational facilities in the fields of science and technology such as Qinghua Technology Park or Beishida Zhuhai. The area also offers high-class accommodation near the university, commercial buildings and leisure complexes.

The campus aims to become a modern high level education institution. To achieve this, RMJM’s design addresses the main issues identified in the development of the campus: the lack of coherence in the architecture styles and the negative impact on Yixian Avenue caused by the heavy traffic.

With the campus entrance facing the ocean, all the facilities have been designed with the idea of unifying sea and mountain. Alongside the coast, the campus will host all the buildings dedicated to arts and culture. On the other hand, all residential facilities for the university staff will be located high on the hills. In between, the campus offers all kinds of state-of-the-art facilities, from laboratories and libraries to sports facilities.
