By breaking the mass into two volumes, the architects were able to make the building communicate nicely with the surrounding landscape.
Consisting of two dining halls, each seating 400 people, deliberately separating the two genders. The total built area is 3000 sq. meters. The building was originally designed in 2006 but was just completed in 2010.
