The Kadoorie Biological Sciences Building is a 10-storey building with a reinforced concrete structure. The sun shading devices and the external glazed screen covering the exterior of the building are special features of the architectural design. Not only that it is the first building in Hong Kong to make use of steel 'skin' designed to optimise energy use which cuts carbon dioxide emissions by up to 37.6 tons per year, the building's roof houses an aquarium and green house, adding another environmental friendly touch to the academy.
