Architectual Design and Research Institute of Tsinghua University

Profile

 The Architectural Design & Research Institute of Tsinghua University, A class national architectural design and research institute, was founded in 1958. It is always relied on solid and profound resources of scholastic attainments, scientific research and teaching, and becomes a base in combination with teaching, scientific research and practice of School of Architecture, School of Hydraulics and Civil Engineering. We pay more attention on the academic research and the transformations of scientific results, our planning and designing level stand on the first list domestically.

The institute has more than 300 staff including 70 national Grade-One registered architects, 55 Grade-One registered construction engineers, and over 60% senior engineers. So it can be said that they are densely talented, specialties concentrated, personnel highly qualified and technology tremendously strengthened. Our institute has six architectural engineering design departments; four studios headed by members of national academy of sciences, national academy of engineering and national masters of designs; two architectural studios; and a culture heritage protection department, an eco-design department, a programming department, a BIM Center, a project design consultation & evaluation department and a green architecture department. As one of the famous architectural design institutes, we have mainly undertaken various kinds of public and civil architectural protective designs, urban designs, the planning of residential areas and dwelling designs; the protection of ancient buildings and their restorations; sonic gardens, indoor designs and the early-stage feasible study and the consult of architectural programming.

In these years, our institute has won the prides promulgated by the national and the ministerial for more than 60 projects which are designed and finished by ourselves. The main projects are as fellows: Beijing Ju’er Hutong Residential Area, Library of Peking University, Library of Tsinghua University, Beijing Tianqiao Theater and Haidian Residential Service District which have enjoyed a good reputation from the society. Furthermore, we also do a large amount of research work on the design of ecological building; both Design Center Building of Tsinghua University and Lower Consume Building are excellent practice. Throughout a series of international competitions and bids, we’ve also done well, such as the National Theater and Beijing International Exhibition sports Center. In 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, our institute won three bids of Olympic Gymnasiums, including the National Shooting Range for Beijing Olympic Games, the Gymnasium for Flying Dishes and the Gymnasium of Judo and Taekwondo for Beijing Olympic Games; they’ve been finished and served well during the Olympic Games.

At the side of scientific research, we have independently developed the TUS engineering design software which has passed the national appraisal. Our institute has engaged in the development of many national standard specifications and some international projects. In 2001, entrusted by the National Management Commission of registered architects, and cooperating with the school of architecture, we have compiled an edition of the No.3 textbook entitled Ecological Strategy of Architectural Design, and the No.4 Architectural Design and Economy for the continuation education of national registered architects.

Our Institute develops international exchange and cooperation actively; we have good cooperative relationships with colleges and universities, research institute, design units and clients in more than ten countries and regions, such as France, America, Japan, Germany, Australia and HKSAZ. In, we’ve won the quality system certificates of Chinese CNAB and British UKAS.

So far from the beginning, the Architectural Design and Research Institute of Tsinghua University has been continuing insisting on striking quality management to strive as its goal for “designing elaborately, creating excellent works, self-surpassing and constructing top-quality projects”. Our group is young and full of energy, if the architecture could be said as labels of one city’s culture, our architects would outline them with fluent lines, describe them with soul thought, practice them with gusty enthusiasm, and the aim is to make the world better.
