The IAS building capital project is funded by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government and The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. Emblematic of the lofty vision and broad inclusiveness of IAS, the building is located atop the Lee Shau Kee campus commanding a spectacular sea and main campus view.

The five-story iconic building houses a 200-seat lecture theater, an open auditorium, three seminar rooms, one conference room and about 100 offices. The facilities make the place an ideal home for face-to-face intellectual interactions and IAS activities.
