Architecture Design Award Winner.
Awarded for Good Architecture, Building and Structure Design.
Titled Shan Shui Shi Lin (mountain water rock forest), the project is imagined as a Chinese landscape painting, one of the oldest art forms in Chinese culture. The architects had adopted the compositional techniques of a Chinese landscape painting to create a more layered visual experience. With the school’s clock tower resting in the far background, the mid-ground defined by two blocks, and the new block strategically oriented to embrace the foreground of curated rock-scape and landscape, the project becomes an exploration for translating visual pleasure into a functional built form.Learn More
