The firm headed by Benedetta Tagliabue has placed first in the competition to build the Conservatory of Music on the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) campus, in the Longgang District of Shenzhen. With a built area of 129,700 square meters, the winning scheme presents several buildings in dialogue with and blending into the environment. The pieces are arranged in a way that tries to establish continuity within the intervention, and also to highlight elements like the sculptural volume of the theater that takes in an audience of 700 people. The complex also features a concert hall with capacity for 500, a rehearsal hall seating 200, a library, a student residence, a sports complex, and administrative offices. As for energy consumption, the design optimizes passive strategies through a detailed study of orientations and the materials to be used, including wood and ceramic.
