The three selected proposals are all from academicians or masters in the field of planning and architecture. With a reasonable layout in the exhibition area, the three design proposals were lined up, and each proposal was centered on a 1:800 sand table model booth, surrounded on three sides by exhibition panels reflecting the style of the proposal, and the TV screen on the front explained the planning concept and design highlights in a loop.

Prof. YANG Renshu fully recognized the milestones achieved by the Headquarters in the overall planning and collection work, urged all the staff to enhance the sense of mission and responsibility to perform their duties, and push forward the work at the height of the major historical development opportunities of USTB. He pointed out that USTB has achieved fruitful results over the past 70 years since its establishment. Now, USTB is striding toward the goal of the “100th anniversary of USTB and a world-class university”. The construction of the Xiong’an Campus is a key step to achieving the goal. He also stressed the need for long-term planning and a collaborative layout. We should balance the relationship between heritage and innovation in terms of function, layout, style, and details, so as to perfectly integrate the cultural tradition of the Beijing Institute of Iron and Steel Technology and the spirit of the times of the USTB. At the same time, we should adhere to the “student-oriented” concept, listen to the suggestions of students and teachers, embody the ownership of students, and build a satisfactory learning and working venue for them.
