The Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre is an academic building on the campus of the City University of Hong Kong which was built in 2011. It is located on Tat Hong Avenue, Kowloon Tong, to the north of City University’s main campus. It was designed by Daniel Libeskind cooperating with Leigh and Orange Ltd. The building received architectural awards from Emporis and International Property Awards.
This nine-story crystalline building is designed to accommodate a range of flexible environments for research and experimentation. Each space, whether self-contained or open, is unique. The dramatic central stair spirals upward with irregular twists and curves creating unexpected gathering spaces. Asymmetrical windows cut into the walls of lecture halls, classrooms and computer labs allowing for natural light to fill even the inner-most rooms of the Center. Interactive spaces flow in and around the sound stages, recording studios, screening rooms, exhibit and performance spaces, multipurpose theater, and other areas.
The building hosts the university’s programmes, an open, multi-directional art space that focuses on art learning, research and exchange
Open to the public only during the events.
