Education and Culture

INSPIRATION:
Beside the standardization of modular system and the most apparent framework of the structure, the architectural presentation to teachers and students is a soft and changeable image, with the expression of our understanding of Hangzhou city character. It is a direct reflection of the functions such as functional interconnection, outdoor activities, ventilation, and sunshade and so on.As the campus commanding height defined by the plan, we want to make it a viewing platform in the landscape.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Architectural design is based on a strict modular system, which is all used to control the plane, elevation and details of construction of complicated functional complex; Ensure with reasonable economic cost, to achieve a high degree of completion of construction quality; And to reduce the burden on future operations and maintenance. It is also a highly adaptive modular system, and we carried out the targeted adjustments to the different requirements of the seven main functions.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
A huge site is divided into several smaller-scaled blocks, which are completely open between the blocks and put together the surrounding colleges. Each block is based upon one main function, considering the requirements of an independent managing body for operational management, while the blocks are also linked with each other to meet the needs of convenient and flexible use. The ground buildings are arranged outside the blocks, so as to enclose the Main Square in the middle.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In order to make the century-old school reborn in the new century; to make the interconnected platform an open stage for teachers and students to perform infinite innovations. The designers used a strict modular system to control the plane, elevation and details of construction of this complicated functional complex, so as to ensure reasonable economic cost, to achieve a high degree of completion of construction quality; and to reduce the burden on future operations and maintenance. It is also a highly adaptive modular system, and the designers carried out the targeted adjustments to the different requirements of the ten main functions.

CHALLENGE:
How to present a soft and changeable image to teachers and students under the standardization of modular system and the most apparent framework of the structure is one of our challenges. Bridge, retreat, interior, eaves and so on is a direct reflection of the functions such as functional interconnection, outdoor activities, ventilation, and sunshade and so on. It also reduces the volume of the building. As the campus commanding height defined by the plan, we want to make it look like a viewing platform in the landscape, overlooking the campus, overlooking the old streets and looking out over nature.
