Located in Shenzhen, China’s innovation hub, our inaugural campus in Asia brings to life Renzo Piano Building Workshop’s prototypical design for a Whittle campus.
The clean-lined eight-story building is situated in the heart of the vibrant, rapidly growing Qianhai district. Among the building’s distinctive features is an active glass façade, which is animated by screens that move throughout the day in response to the position of the sun. This maximizes the natural light in our classrooms while also regulating glare.
The campus is also home to our most expansive Workshop Floor—over 50,000 square feet! Whether a student’s project is 2- or 3-D, physical or digital, the Workshop Floor’s state-of-the-art facilities set the stage to see an idea through from concept to reality.
