Title:
“Urban Courtyards - Building Campuses in Shenzhen | Wang Weijen Architecture” Exhibition @ PMQ

Through recently built school projects in Shenzhen by Wang Weijen Architecture, the exhibition explores the vertical transformation of the courtyard typology for campus architecture in a high-density urban context. Assembling together models and drawings of projects including the Shixia Primary School, the Jiaokeyuan Middle School, as well as the Library, Student Center and Dormitory for the Chinese University of Hong Kong Shenzhen Campus, the exhibition investigates how the courtyard typology moderates scale with nature, establishing sectional strategies which integrate sky patios and tree terraces for shaping three-dimensional urban courtyards interweaving architecture and landscape prototypes for multilevel campuses in Shenzhen.
