OPEN’s Ocean Center (The Deep Ocean Innovation Base of Tsinghua University Graduate School at Shenzhen) topped out on June 15th, 2015.
The Ocean Center is made up of 5 leading research centers of deep ocean science in China. The 60 meters-high-building is standing on the eastern end of the grand axis of the campus, right next to the main gate. OPEN’s “vertical campus” design strategy will make the building not only be a new type of research labs with high efficiency, but also a dynamic social energizer on the end of the grand axis of the campus.
The secretary and dean of Tsinghua University Graduate School at Shenzhen, the deputy director of Public Works Bureau, the general manager of Contractor Huashi, the leaders of Local Design Institute iBR, the leaders of supervising units and Li Hu, the principal architect of OPEN, attended the topping-out ceremony at 10am on June 15th. Ocean center is expected to be completed in 2016.
