The purpose to build this building is to develop a holistic culture on the campus. It aims to provide a multi-faculty facility with an inter-sectorial collaboration. The native landscape site of the campus is challenging for the John Wardle Architects. The project focus on meditation on the building as sites is close to the land.

The most recognised feature is the cerulean steel walls in the bus interchange, which inspired by the Victorian style railway stations. Learning and teaching building architecture is in a circular grid. The large glass walls allow the daylight to enter the building, which reduces the cost of the electricity. The verticality of the building and natural pathway reduces the dependence on lifts.
