This thesis examines the principles that a Chinese campus should have in order to support a world-class academic performance. As China aims to promote the academic reputation of its higher education, it is necessary to upgrade its campuses according to world standards, especially the U.S. examples that greatly influenced the Chinese campuses at their inception. This thesis conducts the research process on the campus of Wuhan University (WHU) as the case study project. First, through quantitative comparison and analysis, the thesis establishes the goals for campus growth. Second, a long range plan of the Wuhan University campus is proposed to guide future developments. Third, this thesis provides a design proposal on an immediately available site named Science Quadrangle in search of an interactive academic environment.
