NANYANG Technological University (NTU) is to become a “Univer-City with a soul,” meaning that the University itself will basically be an entire city. This is expected to happen within the next 14 years.
Basically the Yunnan Garden Campus Master Plan is set to be so large that it will ultimately comprise “numerous informal meeting points dotting its green landscape to encourage cross-faculty and industry interaction.” Since there are so many overlaps between disciplines, the encouragement of inter-disciplinary cohesion is crucial for general advancement.
At the pinnacle of this cohesion will be the Campus Centre – NTU’s focal point. It will comprise shops, eateries, a cinema – everything that together makes up a city, resembling Holland Village.
