Building Tour: Open University Jockey Club Institute of Healthcare | November 28, 2020
Venue:Open University Jockey Club Institute of Healthcare
Description:

 

The new OUHK Jockey Club Institute of Healthcare will be situated on Sheung Shing Street, opposite the Open University’s Ho Man Tin Main Campus. The site, at a major traffic interchange and on a steep slope, posed numerous design challenges but also generated an innovative and vibrant circulation concept called “GREEN OU LINK” to achieve these three goals:

         Everywhere is learning

         Engaging with greenery

         Community connector

The 13-storey building will be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities including lecture theatres and nursing laboratories; allied health laboratories and a psychology laboratory; a special education needs centre, learning commons, student activity and active learning classrooms. The academic concourse comprises open stairs, pathways and alcoves to promote walking and offer flexible, relaxed learning spaces. More than 30 percent of the Institute will be wrapped in greenery to harmonize with the adjacent public park and unify the neighborhood.

There are only 24 slots available for this tour and our guests will be split into three groups, each one guided by an architect from Ronald Lu & Partners.

During the tour, guests are required to:

1.         Wear shoe coverings (these will be provided by OU for visiting the conference hall)
2.         Wear a surgical mask during the entire visit
3.         NOT consume any food or drink during the visit
4.         NOT take photos of the nursing lab and/or the Chinese Medicinal Lab.

Please RSVP at rsvp@aiahk.org with your full name, membership number and number of tickets by 5:00pm on Thursday November 26 (maximum of 2 tickets per each registration) and, if you have any questions, contact the Chapter office at rsvp@aiahk.org / 2882-6011.

Priority will be given to AIA members and attendees will receive 1.5 LUs/HSW.  We look forward to seeing you there!
