The industrial scale and form of buildings inspired a School of Industrial Design on the site. The structure and form of the existing buildings allowed the new program. An adaptive reuse strategy was adopted. The riverfront, creek and hill were connected as an ecological corridor, for bicycle and pedestrian connections. The school provides a public amenity for the surrounding town of Jiangmen. // Joint Workshop Southern China University of Technology, Guangzhou, China and UC Berkeley | 2013 Topic: Transformation of a former industrial facility into a Design University.
