Xinjiang Art College Master Plan and Architectural Design Project Snapshot

Xinjiang Art College (XAC) is the only college focusing on regional culture and art in Northwestern China. Its new Toutun campus is located in Urumqi with a land area of 800 mu (about 131 acres). Its hilly site has over 50 meter rise from the south to the north of the site. Along with a local design institute, SaaN provided consulting services in master plan of overall campus and architectural design of its key buildings. SaaN’s master plan follows the principle of sustainability, pays tributes to economical, contextual, cultural and humanistic factors. The plan organizes different functional zones along a central axis. It takes advantage of site terrain and place buildings to avoid extensive cut and fill. Music Hall is designed with contemporary forms that emulate Gobi Desert in Xinjiang and Uyghur women’s graceful dancing costume.
