New meets old in vision for future campus 

Perkins Eastman, in collaboration with Shandong Design Institute, has designed a constructible master plan for the new Qingdao branch of Shandong University (SDU). 1.2 million sq m of buildings will be constructed in a single phase on the 202-hectare campus, breaking ground in late 2011 with estimated completion in 2016.

Situated on the Yellow Sea overlooking Aoshan Bay near Qingdao, the campus will expand Shandong University's international presence by providing world-class teaching, living, and research and development facilities. Cultural facilities on the campus also will serve the local Qingdao community.

In tribute to the original master plan for Shandong University Medical School at Qilu, China, this master plan combines traditional and modern campus planning and architectural and landscape principles to create a campus environment that advances the university's international reputation.

Taking inspiration from Western models of planning for higher education campuses, the campus will foster non-traditional learning through the integration of student centres and dining facilities within the residential buildings. The campus is also defined by its pedestrian-friendly environment with a walkable scale.

The overall master plan is informed by a comprehensive sustainability plan that heralds SDU's status as a distinguished institution for higher learning, most notably including the use of ground source heat pumps; supplementary tidal energy generation; grey water treatment for site irrigation and toilet flushing; and a green roof covering below-grade parking for 1,500 vehicles.
