Duke University - Kunshan Campus Kunshan, China

Completed 2013

Duke University Kunshan Campus is a 200-acre global campus in Kunshan, China. With a four-acre water ecosystem as the central landscape element, the campus is also organized around flexible public spaces, ecological design, and spatial character that responds to seasonal changes. Primary gathering spaces are designed to facilitate movable benches, planters, and sculptures, accommodating large events, art installations, and social/learning space. The lake’s design includes submerged plazas that will reveal and become usable during lower rainfall periods, which coincide with peak student attendance and space demand.

Will worked on Duke University while at LandDesign in collaboration with Gensler.
