Designed by UNStudio and DP Architects. The Singapore University of Technology & Design (SUTD) has an amazing futuristic architecture design with 2 main axes that offer an opportunity to embrace innovation and creativity through a non-linear connective relationship between students, faculty, professionals and the spaces they interact with
From the architects: The academic campus is designed through two main axes: the living and learning spines, which overlap to create a central point and bind together all corners of the campus. At the centre of this node UNStudio proposed a flexible space for exhibitions, events and interaction: this Campus Centre forms the intellectual heart of the campus and directly links the main programmatic anchors of the Auditorium, the International Design Centre and the University Library.
The SUTD is a highly sustainable building, incorporating numerous passive design strategies designed to counteract the conditions caused by Singapore’s tropical climate. Based on extensive orientation and wind studies natural ventilation principles are applied throughout the design, alongside cooling techniques, covered walkways, louvred facade shading, open voids, extensive daylight to the interiors and protection from heavy rain showers.
