The Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre Grand Opening Festival October 28th
The opening of the Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre is a cause for celebration for City University of Hong Kong (CityU). This landmark building epitomizes the leading role the University plays in education for creative media and communication professionals in support of Hong Kong’s economic development.
Designed by architect Daniel Libeskind, the Centre puts CityU in that worldwide league of institutions that possesses truly inspiring architecture. The passion for creativity embodied in this building echoes our commitment to excellence in research and professional education.
The Centre is named after the internationally renowned entrepreneur and philanthropist Sir Run Run Shaw in appreciation of his generous donation to CityU. We are deeply grateful to Sir Run Run for his generosity and support for CityU’s strategic development over the years.
In addition to housing the School of Creative Media, the Centre also plays host to the Department of Computer Science, Department of Media and Communication, Department of English and Centre for Applied Computing and Interactive Media. The building, with its inviting exhibition space on the top floor, is set to become an international meeting point for scholars, professionals and the community, promoting inter-disciplinary exchange, research and synergistic collaboration.
We have no doubt that the Centre will bring CityU one step closer to realizing its strategic vision as a leading global university and spearheading change in Asia that will support social and economic advancement.
