Education Resource Centre

Category C: Institutional Projects (Educational Buildings)

Architect: W Architects Pte Ltd

Client / Owner: National University of Singapore

The architect set out to design a building for educational research which would give the campus community a central space which is open, interactive, intimately scaled and incorporating some of the original mature fauna found at the site.

The programme is spread over 3 levels of fluid, amorphous rings sculpted around the majestic trees preserve in the site, creating an open-sided central courtyard.

Rooms are ‘randomly’ distributed on the organic-shaped floor plates. The design created well-appointed break-out/reading/activity areas in between, which are day-lit and well ventilated, with views centered back on the courtyard and opening outwards.

Looking back on the ERC down below, the campus community would see a green roof blending itself into the environment. The project demonstrates a successful, sustainable approach in design for a community.
