OPEN’s Tsinghua Ocean Center in Shenzhen is recently completed after five years’ time from design to construction. Located at the eastern end of Tsinghua graduate school campus in Shenzhen Xili University Town, it was designed for the newly established deep-ocean research base of Tsinghua University. Science, Humanity and Nature are the three main themes of the design. While accomplishing all the lab and office functions, abundant social spaces were injected into this energetic ‘vertical campus’.
