How to design a school building for the future education?We believe that a good school is multi-dimensional.
For students: The school should be a place where the curiosity and desire to explore of students is satisfied, and where student have immersive learning and their healthy development is protected.
For teachers: The school should also be a place where teachers and students grow together, and a platform for them to achieve their self-worth.
For parents: The school should also be a platform for parents and schools to build education together, and a place for parents to expand their circle of friends.
For the society: The school is also a router for sharing social resources, an incubator of innovation and an open social resource.
For logistics: The school has convenient and efficient management facilities, as well as professional and safe operating space.
Longhua Sanzhi Bilingual School, as a representative of the future school, considers the needs of all parties, responds to the needs of future growth, flexible space, pleasant place, inspiring education and exploratory education, and attaches importance to community activities and the places that are jointly built by parents and the school. The School also takes into account the setting of the pick-up and logistics streamlines, finding a harmonious balance between efficiency and pleasure. Our proposal provides an “informal teaching space” while guaranteeing the efficient and convenient teaching functions of the school. The “outdoor forest” composed of gray space steel truss structure is the most active focus of the school, forming a pleasant way to school and creating a natural and relaxed atmosphere in the forest. Meanwhile, it forms the unique architectural image of the school and becomes a campus filled with distinctive characteristics and fun.

The composite use of space is the development trend of new schools. Each space needs to respond to the needs of more types of populations, and then merges them into multiple clear requirements and corresponding strategies. Except for the municipal roads on the north side of the base, neither interfaces surrounding the base are opened directly to outside. The site has a large height difference inside and outside.The north side of the base is the only public interface of the project.
The cluster with a high public character is arranged on this side and the stadium side. The functions that are less public are arranged to the center of the base layer by layer.The three clusters of primary and junior high schools organize their functions centering on their own inner courtyard. The ordinary classrooms and flexible classrooms are laid out in the same layer, providing a better cluster relationship for subsequent classes.

The theater lecture hall, swimming pool and teacher’s office areas that are most suitable for the shared use are arranged on the shared axis between the primary and junior high schools, which facilitates the school management. The teacher’s offices appear in a more open form of joint office, which improves the quality of the office and promotes the communication among teachers.

Continuous multi-layered open floors, terraces and roof gardens become a good place to go for daily teaching, rest and ecological experience. The most active multi-story terraces and the open floors facing the court through are integrated through a complete light steel structure roof – forming the “School in the Forest” together.

A continuous roof is used to arrange the rest of buildings into an efficient and simple form, which is in stark contrast to the core steel platform.

Based on the above design strategy, a well-defined, efficient and open school is presented.
