郑州财经学院航空港校区 | Perkins&Will




The new campus of Zhengzhou College of Finance and Economics is located in Zhengzhou Airport Economic Zone in Henan province, China. The campus will be constructed in three phases, for 25,000 students, with a total construction area of 1 million square meters. Perkins&Will's design echoes the rich cultural heritage of Henan and embodies the school's vision of an integrated campus that serves industry, academia, and research, within the setting of the new Airport Economic zone.



The design drew inspiration from the broad central plains that were a birthplace of Chinese civilization. The masterplan pays homage to the region’s rich heritage of traditional cultural values by placing the whole campus within a formal setting. A scholar’s garden forms the heart of this innovative masterplan. The dialogue between a formal framework and a natural green centerpiece anchors the identity of the institution. Equally, the design framework creates opportunities for an open educational environment, nurturing and empowering the growth of young academic minds.

The new campus layout articulates the distinctive qualities of the ancient Songyang Academy, a revered institution redolent of longstanding governance and clarity of order. For the new masterplan, a central axis links four zones, creating broad tree-lined boulevards as in a traditional city setting. Open-sided colonnades on the ground level of the academic buildings provide a ring of circulation that shelters pedestrians from the extremes of the climate. At the heart of the campus, the grand landscaped park creates a modern ‘shanshui’ garden, supporting the ancient philosophy of ‘learning in and from nature’. The central lake is framed by several iconic waterfront buildings. The library, conference center and dining center serve as focal points within the park and foster a sense of a balanced academic lifestyle. The subtle movement of water, with its reflection of the buildings and landscape, achieves a visual harmony, alluding to a campus where tradition and innovation, nature and man-made sit in harmonious relationship.



The architecture of the academic, community and residential buildings addresses both the grand gesture of the masterplan and a human scale. The buildings are arranged into a series of large courtyards to efficiently group the functional teaching, community and residence areas. The academic buildings are designed with a formal language, a vertical strata of solid and void. The material of the academic blocks are finished in a stone texture, creating a serious dignified character. Key individual buildings next to the lake feature poetic interpretations of nature, such as the growth and texture of bamboo, translating these qualities into rhythmic array of angled façade elements.

The interior design traces themes of nature with science and innovation to stimulate learning and interaction. A variety of color palettes differentiate each of these natural lighted spaces to enhance recognition and identity between the different building types. The robustly modeled academic blocks, the elegant library, and the liveliness of the recreation center are boldly expressed through a selection of materials paired with interior furnishing. The design creates flexibility of space using modular systems to allow group discussion areas, individual study and reading spaces, providing new opportunities for social interactions among different group of users.



Combining spatial cues with the use of a color-coded system, the wayfinding and signage also act as a powerful component to establish the brand and identity of the institution. By referencing patterns of plants with symbolic meanings of elegance, the design echoes traditional Chinese ink and wash painting techniques. The simplicity of the signage design inherently weaves throughout the campus in a dynamic and informative way, poetically alluding to the ideals of an ancient form of art and the present.



The central park and lake combine natural beauty with a rainwater harvesting system to enhance the natural environment and reduce energy consumption. The array of taller buildings on the north-west side of the campus effectively shields the harsh wind during winter, while green roofs and breezes moving over the large body of water and the broad avenues will cool the campus during Zhengzhou’s hot summer months. In this way a year-round the park becomes a green and healthy centerpiece to the entire campus.
