Supporting inter-disciplinary collaboration and outreach

The iconic building will feature predominantly academic uses (lecture theatres, classrooms and meeting rooms), but will also include collaborative teaching and learning space for engagement. At the heart of the building is a connected ground floor lobby that is openly accessible to encourage inclusivity and outreach, with entrances to draw people into the campus from different directions.

The planned sunken garden will be a vibrant public space and a welcoming entrance for visitors of the Pokfield Campus, defined by the iconic building design and linked to the planned landscape terraces and walking path along Pokfield Road.
Floor space has been designed to encourage collaboration and engagement between academic uses through flexible spaces, including common areas, open study areas, teaching support and administration facilities. The atrium and breakout spaces filled with natural light and invigorating greenery will provide ample spaces for learners and teams to engage.
