Duke Kunshan is a world-class liberal arts university based in Kunshan, China, that offers a range of high quality, innovative academic programs for students from around the world. It was established in September 2013 as a U.S.-China partnership between Duke University and Wuhan University.

The city of Kunshan, in Jiangsu province, is one of China’s fastest-growing economies and is a hub for high-tech research and manufacturing. The city is surrounded by picturesque forests and water towns, and is also connected by high-speed rail and subway to Shanghai and Suzhou, two of China’s most dynamic cities.

杜克大学计划要成为全球第一个真正全球化的大学,在各个重要的经济与文化中心设立校区,由此推出了在中国昆山建设昆山校区的规划,并在2015年一期竣工及投入使用。一期建筑总面积约为65,427平方米,包含面积为19,580平方米的商学院、面积为177,738平方米的会议中心和宾馆,以及10,355平方米的拥有200张床位的学生公寓。
整个校区非常之静谧,拍摄没有任何的干扰。几幢主体建筑风格统一,大面积的采用玻璃幕墙,立面简洁且线条明确,在阳光的照射下,处处显得晶莹剔透。拍摄的角度与构图,着重突出对称感及块面感,注意表现整体的透明度。有些照片,我们打破以往的拍摄习惯,特别选择在正午的阳光下拍摄,加强线与面的对比,刻画晶体化的画面效果。
