Grand Hall, Lee Shau Kee Lecture Centre, HKU
The Lee Shau Kee Lecture Centre, a focal point of the Centennial Campus, is a generous gift from Dr. Lee Shau Kee. The Grand Hall at the Lecture Centre was completed in September 2012.
The Hall is built on the site of an underground reservoir that served various areas of the Hong Kong Island. Now, with its remarkable architectural design and dazzling acoustics, the Hall aspires to be a vital “reservoir of knowledge” for academic and cultural activities, serving the region and beyond.
Designed by Wong & Ouyang (HK) Ltd., the Hall has been built as a modern and multi-functional box-in-box structure, capable of supporting a wide variety of professional and international events such as concerts, ceremonies, academic conferences, and lectures.
Finished in high quality oak and equipped with a world-class acoustic system designed by Jaffe Holden in association with Shen Milsom & Wilke, the Hall provides excellent sightlines and projects a clear detailed sound, well-blended with a touch of warmth. It promises its audience a unique and memorable acoustic experience.
