新加坡雖然有著不少著名的校園建築,像是如水晶體般建築的拉薩爾藝術學院(Lasalle Art College)等等。而這次介紹位於新加坡的南洋理工大學(Nanyang Technological University)學習中心(Learning Hub),則是近年來當地的新建築亮點,讓這被稱為是設計之都的城市國家,又多了一處讓世人稱羨的設計建築地標。


這座學習中心的設計者便是被稱為建築鬼才的英國建築師湯瑪斯.海澤維克( Thomas Heatherwick ),又一次按照他總是不按牌理出牌的手法設計而成。整棟建築如激盪後層層擴散的漣漪,或如同是層層疊上的花朵。這棟有著多能設計的大樓創造出內部 56 間指導教室以及沒有明顯角落及直角的空間。而面向中庭的開放空間則規劃了陽台、花園與露天走廊,提供了來自各學系的學生及教職員們一個最佳的溝通及互動空間。

摒除了一般教學大樓方正的學習空間,海澤維克事務所(Heatherwick Studio)在數位科技的幫助下設計出與眾不同的學習中心外立面,而有著12座塔型大樓的內部空間設計除了教室外,更在每層環形樓中設計了指導教室及開放式互動空間,加上花園空間的配置下,讓每個空間都能有著無阻礙的流動視線。南洋理工大學試圖以這新式的智慧型教室做為新一代的教學基地,而極靈活及開放式的空間設計則可讓學生與教職員,或是學生間能有更多交流機會。

為了適應新加坡整年炙熱的氣候,保持室內的涼爽與通風也成為了事務所首要的考量因素,同時也試圖將學習中心打造成一座永續建築。這可在學習中心裡開放式與滲透式的空間設計可見一番,讓風能流動於建築物的各角落中,進而減少了空調的使用量。這樣的設計也讓學習中心獲得了由新加坡建設局(Building and Construction Authority)所頒發的綠色白金獎(Green Mark Platinum)。

設計師湯瑪斯這麼說著:「學習中心是海澤維克事務所在亞洲的第一件作品,在設計之初便開始以不同於以往傳統教學大樓的設計方向進行發想。在這資訊快速交流的時代下,校園中也應當要有重要的社交空間可讓彼此交流意見。學習中心以手做混凝土塔的型式呈現,在環狀的設計下有著如將群眾聚集的效果,並在散佈的角落、陽台及花園空間中互相激發學習靈感。事務所也相當榮幸地能與具前衛思想並具有熱情的業主合作,打造出這座非凡的校園學習中心。」

Heatherwick Studio/Learning Hub

The Learning Hub at Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore), designed by Heatherwick Studio and executed by lead architect CPG Consultants, is a new educational landmark for Singapore.
As part of NTU’s redevelopment plan for the campus, the Learning Hub is designed to be a new multi-use building for its 33,000 students.

Instead of the traditional format of an educational building with miles of corridors linking box-like lecture rooms, the university asked for a unique design better suited to contemporary ways of learning. With the digital revolution allowing learning to take place almost anywhere, the most important function of this new university building was to be a place where students and professors from various disciplines could meet and interact with one other. The Learning Hub is envisioned to be a place where students might meet their future business partner or someone they would have an amazing idea with.
The outcome is a structure that interweaves both social and learning spaces to create a dynamic environment more conducive to casual and incidental interaction between students and professors. Twelve towers, each a stack of rounded tutorial rooms, taper inwards at their base around a generous public central atrium to provide fifty-six tutorial rooms without corners or obvious fronts or backs.

The new-generation smart classrooms were conceived by NTU to support its new learning pedagogies that promote more interactive small group teaching and active learning. The flexible format of the rooms allows professors to configure them to better engage their students, and for students to more easily collaborate with each other.

The rooms in turn open onto the shared circulation space around the atrium, interspersed with open spaces and informal garden terraces, allowing students to be visually connected while also leaving space to linger, gather and pause.
NTU Professor Kam Chan Hin, Senior Associate Provost (Undergraduate Education) says, “The new Learning Hub provides an exciting mix of learning, community and recreational spaces for NTU students, professors and researchers from various disciplines to gather and interact. By bringing people and their ideas together, NTU can spark future innovations and new knowledge that increasingly happen at the intersection of disciplines.”

Founder and Principal Thomas Heatherwick, Heatherwick Studio says, “Heatherwick Studio’s first major new building in Asia has offered us an extraordinary opportunity to rethink the traditional university building. In the information age the most important commodity on a campus is social space to meet and bump into and learn from each other. The Learning Hub is a collection of handmade concrete towers surrounding a central space that brings everyone together, interspersed with nooks, balconies and gardens for informal collaborative learning. We are honoured to have had the chance to work with this forward-thinking and ambitious academic institution to realise such an unusual project.”

Project lead Vivien Leong of CPG Consultants, the Lead Architect and Sustainability Consultants for the Learning Hub, says, “The most exciting aspect of this project is to see such an inspired design develop into a uniquely contextual and functional building through a highly collaborative process. Managing this project was no mean feat as we had...

...to ensure that our work complied with Singapore’s rigorous building regulations and that it achieved the highest standards of sustainability, while working hard to retain the integrity of the original design and vision of NTU . The opportunity to challenge convention by introducing several first-of-its-kind environmentally friendly features and innovative solutions that embody the spirit of modern day learning has been a truly rewarding experience for us.”
The combination of local building codes and high environmental aspirations meant that a concrete construction was necessary. The primary design challenge was how to make this humble material feel beautiful.

As a result, the concrete stair and elevator cores have been embedded with 700 specially commissioned drawings, three-dimensionally cast into the concrete, referencing everything from science to art and literature. Overlapping images, specially commissioned from illustrator Sara Fanelli, are deliberately ambiguous thought triggers, designed to leave space for the imagination. The sixty one angled concrete columns have a distinctive undulating texture developed specially for the project. The curved facade panels are cast with a unique horizontal pattern, made with ten cost-efficient adjustable silicone moulds, to create a complex three-dimensional texture. The result of the building’s various raw treatments of concrete is that the whole project appears to have been handmade from wet clay.

With year-round temperatures in Singapore between 25°C and 31°C it was important to maintain the students’ comfort whilst achieving a sustainable energy usage.

The building’s open and permeable atrium is naturally ventilated, maximising air circulation around the towers of tutorial rooms and allowing students to feel as cool as possible. Each room is cooled using silent convection, which does away with the need for energy-heavy air conditioning fans. The Learning Hub building was awarded Green Mark Platinum status by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA), Singapore, the highest possible environmental standard for a building of this type.

In a digital age when many students have multiple communication devices and ready access to knowledge, the Learning Hub reasserts the role of an educational building in the 21st century. No longer a place for traditional classroom teaching to passive students, NTU’s new icon provides space for collaborative learning in a technology-rich setting. Opened till late, it will be a place for students to gather, where knowledge is shared, collaboration between disciplines takes place and where future leaders are nurtured.
