Hong Kong Design Institute

Located adjacent to Tiu Keng Leng MTR Station, the new Hong Kong Design Institute campus covers an area of around 14,500m2 and features four teaching towers that support a two-storey platform for a learning and resource centre.

 

The structure is an innovative design and a metaphor for creativity – the 100m2 platform represents a ‘floating white sheet’ sitting 33m above ground level, supported by the four towers and a diagrid structural system.
