Emphasis has been placed on efficiency and mixed-use development

The green space is so well-articulated that it’s possible for students, faculty and visitors to experience all of the seasons on what ZNA proposes to be one of Beijing’s greenest university campuses. But it is also expected to act as an eco-showcase of the numerous projects produced by science and technology students.

Eclipsing the perimeter of the sunken garden is a circular street that connects the study and meeting areas, as well as leisure and food and beverage areas, all of which are structured in a way to maximize efficiency and to establish a community spirit. Albeit a large development, the Baidu campus could easily pave the way for greener, mixed-use universities throughout China.
