The building has varying roof heights and the multiple spaces created with “pagodas” provide an alternate kind of scenery for the Tsing Hua campus. Though the building was built using steel-reinforced concrete, beams and pillars were still deliberately included to form a spatial framework akin to Chinese timber structures. The arrangement of the spatial layers also follow the layered design of Chinese courtyard houses with their progression of solid and void. This gives the building the spatial character of courtyard houses.
