Each year, Schwarzman Scholars brings up to 200 students from countries around the world to study in Beijing on the campus of Tsinghua University, at Schwarzman College. Inspired by the Rhodes Scholarship, Schwarzman Scholars is designed to educate future world leaders about China and to prepare them to confront the most difficult challenges of the coming century.
SM&W worked closely with the design team, Robert A.M. Stern Architects, and stakeholders to address the AV, Acoustics, IT and Security needs of this a state-of-the-art academic and residential building.
The five-story building houses a central forum modeled after Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, where scholars will engage with speakers and performers. In addition to student suites and classrooms, it also houses an International Conference Center, the Dalio Auditorium, common areas, a library, dining hall, pub, and gym.
The project is LEED Gold certified.
