Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Photo Thread in the Hong Kong section : http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=298896



The university is set in the middle of a rolling countryside with many islands out in the ocean.



Imagine living in a dorm with an ocean view!







The university extends downhill, with a series of walkways and elevators bringing the students and faculty up and down the changing elevations.

I've been to the UofS campus in Saskatoon! Charming University for a charmng little town Some great buildings set in wonderful grounds. Was also surprised at the size of it considering the relatively small city it serves.

City College of NY has a very nice looking campus, and it's not mentioned a lot.

the university of mindanao, philippines

THE UNIVERSITY OF MINDANAO
The University of Mindanao Main Campus is located at the heart of Davao City. Formerly the Japanese School site, Atty. Guillermo Torres saw the property’s potential as the ideal site for the Mindanao Colleges despite the devastated and idle appearance left by the American bombings in 1944. He determinedly acquired the lot for the noble cause of education for all – the poor and the rich alike – that they may have a better future. Construction of the first one-story building at Bolton, the nucleus of many other constructions that soon followed, started as soon as the property was awarded. All classes from the previously occupied Club Royale were transferred to the Bolton campus in the school year 1947-48. With the expanding population of the school, there was a need to have more space. The Japanese Embassy grounds in front of the Mindanao Colleges eventually became the property of MC in 1964. After several years of hard work and dedication, a permanent and ideal home for Torres’ dream was realized.

At present, the UM Main Campus occupies two adjacent lots namely the Administrative Building and Research Tower Area and the Embassy Area. The Administration Building and Research Tower Area consists of the 4-storey Social Science Building, the 4-storey Technology Building and 7-storey Research Tower Building. The Embassy Area, which took its name from the previous occupancy, is composed of the Gymnasium, College of Accountancy and the College of Criminology Buildings. The Colleges of Business Administration, Law and Graduate Programs are also housed in this campus.

Along with the aim of giving the best leadership education for the students, providing adequate spaces conducive to an educational environment for the students further strengthens this. From a 4-room educational institution, a big university was established. The University of Mindanao, yesterday’s vision is now a realization.





THE UNIVERSITY OF MINDANAO
G.E.T. 1(GUILLERMO E. TORRES BUILDING 1)
A plan to expand and create a bigger and more conducive place for learning was envisioned by Atty. Guillermo E. Torres. The site for the new campus was bought in 1981 and plans for developing the place campus into a sprawling center for learning took place. In 1983, the College of Engineering and Architecture transferred to the Matina Campus.

Completed in the year 1996 is the GET 1 building of the UM Matina Campus. The GET 1 building, named in honor of Atty. Guillermo E. Torres, follows the concept of formal balance and symmetry. The protractor-shaped building deviates from the usual square building – relevantly symbolizing a common measuring instrument of the colleges housed namely: the College of Engineering and the College of Architecture. This was designed by Arch’t. Digna Claudio of Manila.


GET 1 was inaugurated during the 50th Founding Anniversary of the University. Its columns with distinctly designed capitals – originally colored gold – represent the “golden” celebration. Exposing the columns essentially exhibits the strength, capability and potential of the university which had been ambiguously hidden for several years. Tropical design was also considered as a major factor in the design. Comfort and efficiency were introduced through natural lighting and ventilation. The interior landscaping in the atrium provides a scenic view from the classrooms and enhances a healthy environment.









UM MATINA ENGINEERING LABORATORY BUILDING





THE UNIVERSITY OF MINDANAO
GUILLERMO E. TORRES BUILDING 2
( College of Arts and Science Building)

Completed in the summer of 2003, the GET 2 building was all set for use in the school year 2003-2004 to house the College of Nursing and College of Arts and Sciences. Each college has been equipped with their respective modern laboratories for the students’ simulated practice exercises. The University Auditorium and Conference Room is also located in this building.

The building was designed by the university’s very own Arch’t. Iluminado Quinto, Jr., Arch’t. Manuel De Luna and Arch’t. Jaime Gonzaga. Replicated from GET1 is the exposure of the columns as to express “strength is being exposed”. Aside from this, unity and harmony with GET 1 is intended to be achieved. The two large blocks at the façade serves as contrast to the grid of intersecting exposed columns and beams, further accentuated by the difference of colors.

On the plan, GET 2 building’s main entrance has been located at the left of the center of the building. This particular decision was made because of two basic reasons. The first one is related with the visual identity and distinction between GET 1 and GET 2. GET 1 is symmetrical (formal balance) while GET 2 is asymmetrical. The second reason is rather functional. Immediately to the left of the lobby is the auditorium. The direct connectedness between these two major areas offers great advantage on way finding for guests whose prime destination is the auditorium. Through this, the rest of the building which is mostly classrooms would be left undisturbed. The south-western wing of the building is a double loaded corridor, initially designed to accommodate the laboratory and library facilities.
