Nanyang Technological University – South Building
Known as the Yunnan Garden Campus, the Nanyang Technological University campus is a valuable asset in Singapore’s densely built environment and is renowned for its generous greenscape. Revery’s design competition submission for the proposed Academic Building South blends built form with the surrounding Yunnan Garden. The new building emerges from the landscape as a series of rolling mountain formations with landscaped terraces. The form steps back from the south, creating a building massing that melts into the sloped landscape lining the northern edge of the Pan Island Expressway.
As the building mass undulates from south to north, the building parts at the center to create a grand entry and a flowing connection between the lush, historical Yunnan Garden to the east and the open greenspace and campus buildings to the west. This new building positions itself as a gateway between the old campus buildings and residential halls to the east and new campus buildings to the north and west, offering a signature place for congregating, interacting, and learning in the Yunnan Garden Campus.
