Gateway of Shenzhen Southern University of Science and Technology Proposal | penda

Titled Between earth and sky, this proposal for the new Gateway of Shenzhen Southern University of Science and Technology by penda is a metaphor of formal contrasts to design a campus landmark.

Their design for an entrance sculpture at the University is a connection of two opposites: the fluid, lower part connects the gate to the gentle hills of the landscape in the background and carries a grid of lights, which can be seen as a connection to the cosmos – a contrast of the earth and the sky. Furthermore the landmark should symbolize a freedom of thinking on one hand and certain guidelines on the other hand, which stand for a system and order in science – a contrast of endless possibilities and technical limitations.

With those opposites, the sculpture describes what a modern Technical University should stand for – a symbiosis of nature and technology.
