Shanghai Tech Administrative Building
Administration building is located to create a prominent welcome for visitors entering from the main south gate. The ark of the entrance drive delivers vehicles to a grand covered west-facing entry portico. Open office areas, private offices, and conference rooms are distributed among levels one through four. The dining room and its support spaces are located on level two at the west end. A special Multi-Purpose room and roof terrace are located on level five taking advantage of views to the Great Lawn and Pond.
The Administration Building’s south façade is defined by the west facing entry portico, the two-story colonnade and canopy that traces the arc of the south facade and, on levels three and four above, the use of large bladed louvers that provide environmental protection for the interior office spaces and assist in defining the overall image of the Crescent. The building is capped by a sculptural metal clad roof that, with the Education and Library, forms a memorable skyline bordering the northern edge of The Great Lawn.
