Unfortunately raw knowledge is often not enough to inspire students even when it's of the highest merit, but a building like the Run Run Shaw Creative Media Center aims to establish a sense of awe that enhances the experience of learning.

An architectural enthusiast may quickly recognize this angular project to be the work of Daniel Libeskind, who is known for the design of monumental edifices that celebrate sharp edges, corners and crystalline structures. The whitewashed masses seem almost to jut from the crust of the earth, asserting a strength and authority over their softer surroundings at the City University of Hong Kong. Fragmented horizontal strip windows intensify the harshness of the geometric forms, so that the Run Run Shaw Creative Media Center will never go unnoticed.
