Xi’an Jiaotong–Liverpool University Administration Information Building

Located in Suzhou Industrial Park, Xi’an Jiaotong–Liverpool University grows up in a beautiful environment where there is a harmonious coexistence of the city’s rich cultural traditions and its rapid economic development. Aedas-designed Administration Information Building was inspired by the famous Taihu stone unearthed in the Taihu lake area west of Suzhou city. The porous nature of the stone is reflected by voids and spaces inside the building, which facilitate interactions and allow a series of sustainable design features.
