Revitalizing a Historic Taiwan Campus

Leers Weinzapfel recently completed a Campus Masterplan study for the National Chiao Tung University in Shinchu Taiwan together with a Concept Design for its first new Biotech Building.

The new 275,000 SF building is the first step in developing a new larger scale precinct of the campus. A second gate to the campus along a major commercial street and opposite a large public park will lead directly to the new Bio-Tech building. Departments of Biology and Technology will come together in the new facility to work in collaboration on interdisciplinary projects including Molecular Microbiology, Bio Medical Electronics, Bio Informatics, and Drug Discovery.

The new building will play a pivotal role in energizing the historic campus and demonstrating the University’s future focus in bio-engineering interdisciplinary research.
