Creative Media Centre | Hong Kong | DANIEL LIBESKIND










The Creative Media Centre for the City University of Hong Kong will provide facilities that will enable the University to become the first in Asia to offer the highest level of education and training in the creative media fields. The Centre will house the Centre for Media Technology and the Department of Computer Engineering and Information Technology. Studio Daniel Libeskind is working with Leigh & Orange Architects and expects the building to be completed in 2010.
The distinctive crystalline design will create an extraordinary range of spaces rich in form, light, and material that, together, will create an inspiring environment for research and creativity. Internal activity spaces have been designed specifically to encourage collaboration through openness and connectivity. The Centre will also serve as an exciting place for visitors, who will be welcomed to enjoy the facilities as part of an extended public outreach program of courses and events. The facility will also include a multi-purpose theatre, sound stages, laboratories, classrooms, exhibition spaces, a cafe and a restaurant. Secluded landscaped gardens to the north of the building will be available for students and the general public alike.
