23 Mar 2020
Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) has named the Communication and Visual Arts Building after Dr The Honorable Lee Shau-kee in recognition of his tremendous contributions to the University.
Naming of the building, which took place on 20 March, follows a generous donation of HK$100 million from Dr Lee Shau-kee through the Lee Shau Kee Foundation last year in support of the University’s strategic development, and in particular its Creative Media and Practice Research Cluster.
Since its opening in 2010, the building has supported the teaching and research activities of the School of Communication and the Academy of Visual Arts. Located on the Baptist University Road Campus, it is well equipped with a wealth of state-of-the-art facilities including the Artificial Intelligence Media Research Laboratory, Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality Workroom, High-Definition Television and Film Studio, Broadcast News Studio, and the recently introduced Dolby Atmos Sound Studio, which is the first of its kind among Asian tertiary institutions. All these professional facilities aim to provide students with hands-on experience with the latest technologies from the media and film industries.
In addition, the building is equipped with a variety of art facilities to meet the teaching needs of the Academy of Visual Arts. The facilities include the Chinese Arts Studio, Glass Studio, Installation Studio, 3D Studio and Exhibition Gallery.
