Jill Lerner Presents HKUST Guangzhou in Lab Design Conference Keynote Panel

On September 21st, the KPF Principal will discuss the ambitious university project’s significant lab and research facilities as part of the 20th annual conference.

The Guangzhou campus extends the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology’s reach, applying the “One University, Two Campuses” model, incorporating complimentary design and research programs. The state-of-the-art research facilities focus on a wide range of disciplines, including engineering-based programs in autonomous vehicles and smart manufacturing, and feature a vivarium and AR/VR labs. Putting science on display, the laboratories utilize glass to increase visibility into the maker spaces and research areas.

The entire campus is treated as a “living lab” experiment, analyzing air and water quality, the study of behavioral patterns and sustainability, and the testing and use of autonomous vehicles on and around the campus. This “living lab” aspect serves to constantly improve the campus’ environmental performance through metering, research, education, and experimentation. Located in the tech center of southern China, HKUST Guangzhou will include major lecture halls, a substantial library, seven eating venues, athletic facilities, and two distinct housing communities to support the future growth of the campus. Josh Meyer, Managing Principal at JACOBS, will join Jill on the panel.

The Lab Design Conference is the leading business conference and exhibition, serving professionals in the design, build, construction, retrofit, and management of state-of-the-art laboratories. The conference program and faculty feature a wide range of expertise covering topics such as lab design, engineering, market trends, sustainability, project management, collaboration, construction, and more.

The conference begins on September 20th, hosted at the Sheraton Philadelphia, with Jill’s panel taking place on September 21st at 8:30 am. Learn more and register here.
