Henning Larsen在香港科大设计的新多功能礼堂已动工,被命名为逸夫演艺中心,是中国香港科大清水湾校区的最新扩建项目。 该项目被设计为椭圆形建筑,由一系列相互交错的白色圆环组成,旨在成为一个充满活力的新型文化场所。椭圆形的建筑形态塑造了校园周围的流线,可作为通往大学的门户和学生的文化孵化器。 Henning Larsen has begun construction of a new multi-purpose auditorium for Hong Kong University of Science and Technology。 Dubbed the Shaw Auditorium, the project is the newest addition to the Clear Water Bay campus of Hong Kong University。 The auditorium features an elliptical design with a series of concentric white rings that aims to become a dynamic new cultural venue。 The building’s rounded form was made to shape campus flows as a gateway to the university and a cultural incubator for student life。
Henning Larsen has begun construction of a new multi-purpose auditorium for Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Dubbed the Shaw Auditorium, the project is the newest addition to the Clear Water Bay campus of Hong Kong University. The auditorium features an elliptical design with a series of concentric white rings that aims to become a dynamic new cultural venue. The building’s rounded form was made to shape campus flows as a gateway to the university and a cultural incubator for student life.
Primarily, the auditorium was designed for concerts, lectures, musicals and visual productions. The project is equipped with modular seating that can be adapted to allow for multiple arrangements, ranging from 850 to up to 1300 seats. The hall can also become a large flat floor area providing spaces for conventions or exhibitions. Reflecting the university’s pursuit for innovation, the curved auditorium walls were designed to function as a 360-degree projection screen, enabling immersive audio-visual experiences. Auxiliary classroom spaces, public furniture and an integrated cafe support the broad public program of the university, creating a cultural living room for the entire campus.
“我们旨在打造可持续亚热带建筑的典范，希望能影响到本地的，更多地将气候因素结合到设计环节中。同时，我们还致力于创建灵活多变的演艺厅，以配合大学追求创新的理念，让场馆可以时刻充满生机,” Henning Larsen 合伙人和设计总监Claude Bojer Godefroy解释说。
Sited on a hilltop overlooking Sai Kung Bay, the Shaw Auditorium takes the form of three layered white rings. The concentric volumes extend panoramic views to the surrounding scenery, doubling in function as over-sized sunshades. By reducing energy consumption, the Shaw Auditorium is poised to become the first of this type of buildings in Hong Kong to achieve a BEAM Platinum sustainability rating. “Our design aims to become an example of a sustainable subtropical architecture, hopefully influencing the construction industry in this region to design with more consideration to our climate. We also aimed to create the most transformative and innovative auditorium in this region to match the reputation of the University, and to make sure the venue will be lively at all times,” Partner and Design Principal at Henning Larsen, Claude Bojer Godefroy explains.
该项目是由Henning Larsen与王董建筑师事务有限公司、WSP Hong Kong、Theatreplan、Marshall Day Acoustics、URBIS、Inhabit、CTA和RLB共同合作的，预计将于2021年完工。
