Building 27 was originally designed in the 80's, as the department of architecture of South China University of Technology and is now in need of reconstruction. The structure design of the building in the 80’s was more economical; however, the original structure extension is based less on economical considerations. The expansion required addition of about 5000 square meters of space and maintaining of the original teaching functions and use. The main design concept is to ensure the economy of the premise, as far as possible expansion structure part is independent of the original structure, to avoid the
original structure and to create a clear definition between the new and old. At the same time the design focuses on the atrium building, the campus environment and building space to create effective permeability.
